Office Administrator in Manchester City Centre, Greater Manchester
on 30 November 2020
A great company to work for.
It was a good working environment, a lot of the people when I was working there were friendly, approachable and supportive if I needed support with anything. A lot of my work colleagues there were polite and courteous. The office I was based in is a very busy office so it is very important to concentrate on the work without any distractions. But working at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors there are plenty of social events to get involved in either for the whole office or the individual teams. Social events for the whole office can include the End of Financial Year party, the summer party , Big Quiz night and the office Christmas party. Individual team social events can include going out to a restaurant for a meal or a team fuddle which can take place at lunch time or after work where individuals, are asked to bring any food of their choice depending on their choice.

Claim to be employee-focused, but they are not
Irwin Mitchell used to be a great company to work for. Head office was in Sheffield, and it promoted a good work-life balance. Then Head Office moved to London and the whole culture changed.

TERRIBLE management, work life balance, shift patterns.
So I was at Irwin Mitchell for 2 years in the pPICST Team in the contact centre and it started off not too bad, decent team leader and team.. then it just got worse and worse and worse. More responsibility added to the role, rubbish pay, team leader change ended up terrible for me as the new one just didn't like me and I didn't like her. I felt singled out for being outspoken and speaking my mind and refusing to be targeted. Through covid I just had enough, working from home as personal injury had gone quiet they decided to take on a random law firms calls, give us no training and then throw us in at the deep end with the other firms clients screaming at us daily with us not knowing how to respond. This was sold to us as for our benefit so we can keep our jobs through covid. Management got worse through covid and eventually, every interaction I had with my team leader was negative. In the end I left for the DWP. Couldn't wait to be gone. I even left well before my new start date and didn't care about not earning money for a while.Awful culture in the contact centre, management think they're special when they earn a few k more then the colleagues, no character or charisma about them at all, unjustified arrogance to say the least and if you dont suck up they won't like you. The Personal injury team currently has about 4 people left people are jumping ship. They're looking to bring in at least 8 new people right now. This must be telling them something. Poor shift patterns poor pay and you feel like you live here when you work here.

Modern firm but rubbish pay
Irwin Mitchell is a great firm on the face and have strong values and cultures that are echoed from top to bottom. The problem is colleague especially Paralegals are paid the bare minimum but take on full case loads and lots of responsibility. Trainee solicitors come to the firm and are paid much more and have no experience or knowledge, just a piece of paper stating they have a ‘law’ degree. It can be very stressful and there is a great focus on getting the job done regardless if it’s in working hours.

Need a strong constitution
Try to make out that they "stand apart" from other law firms in terms of support and work life balance, but most of the gestures are superficial. I imagine it is the same most places. Like many work places, individuals can make your day easy or difficult. Pay reviews at the end of the financial year are good, just make sure you never become ill as if you bradford score is too high it doesn't matter if you ace all your other targets.

Not applicable as I was a temporary worker through an agency - they only accepted me as my CV was passed over to them.
