Overworked and underpaid

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The salary you start on is the salary you will remain on. Expected to work extra hours without pay and encouraged to log in at home outside of contracted hours. Unrealistic targets and unmanageable casleoad. Made to feel like you cannot call in sick and made to feel like everything you do isn't good enough.

Pros

Flexible start time

Cons

Low pay, unmanageable caseload, unrealistic targets

Overworked and underpaid

Highly overworked and grossly underpaid. No structure to the hierarchy of employees basically every man for themselves. General consensus of winging it because there’s no clear processes in place for conducting your job. A very formal atmosphere with some bullying from fellow employees or higher up the chain. Low level of pay for a high level workload. Nil opportunity for progression unless happy for low salary. A general mistrust in staff hence the micromanaging.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, low pay, bullying, no trust, micromanaging

Very Stressful

Workload of over 800 files in the recoveries department although the Fraud department is very relaxed. lots of favouritism, pressure is put on you for all your litigated files. The pay is low as well. All the people I knew have left that department people stay for the training contracts.

Pros

casual workwear very sociable

Cons

expect you to stay behind, high file load, low pay you are seen as a number

Operation manager are cover each other’s back, staffs are lazy.

Whole admin team are in a right mess, operation manager are cover each other’s back, one of them is racist and bulling, horrible to work with if you are non white. Staffs are lazy, the manager forcus in the wrong thing; not have enough experience to operate the team. Salary is very low compare to legal firm, trying to sweet people up by once a month free fruit, Easter and Christmas chocolate.

Pros

Free chocolate, fruit.

Cons

Average

Poor pay but good people, fringe benefits are pretty good too. Culture not too demanding and dress down code is relaxed. Look to promote from within most times which is good.

Pros

Fringe benefits ie. Fruit Wednesdays

Cons

poor pay

Fun

Not very well paid, the staff are friendly and it is good for learning. However, the case loads are large and the pay does not reflect the hours one puts in.
