Stinson Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Stinson Aircraft Company was an aircraft manufacturing company in the United States between the 1920s and the 1950s.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) says"First week coworkers came into managers office to complain about another employee while she was training me. Manager did not trust me to get my own work done.Leftovers from meetings available in breakroom almost dailyMicromanaging, lack of flexibility"
Legal Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) says"Just a place to get a check and on to the next. It's a revolving door to see nice attorneys, administrator and the professional staff leave in groves.They feed you lunch and snacks weekly.The weekly lunch and snacks was to compensate for rudeness or being talked down to on a daily basis."
Legal Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says"Stinson - Is not what it seems. Staff are treated like peasants. Only legal assistants get to work on the same floor as the attorneys. Everyone else is on different floors. So you get the full picture. Work is stressful and managers are no where around. They are so busy trying to manage other offices they do not have time to deal with issues. You are left to deal with problems. No training! Word to the wise make sure you know what you are getting into before you jump on this train."
Attorney (Current Employee) says"Profitable with good clients. High, unpersonalized standards for advancement. High emphasis on billable hours, producing new clients. Management has big law firm mindset. Firm will continue to grow."
Staff (Former Employee) says"They're still struggling to merge the cultures of two main offices three years after the merger. The departments are still siloed, and some are great to work in and others you'd quit in a month. They handle complaints extremely poorly, and the people that make them go straight to their manager without even talking to you. So document and be prepared to defend every choice you make on whose work you prioritize. You can do it all perfectly with no complains on quality, but if you do the wrong person's work first you're gone. Communication was just terrible. Nobody knew what any other departments did and it took months/years to communicate policy. This meant explaining everything individually to each person that asked, even on things that were officially changed. To be fair, they have created committees to fix this. But key departments that served hundreds of people didn't even have a manager on them, much less regular staff. Intranet was supposed to be updated to reflect it all, but changes took years and there were no timelines revealed to staff on when changes were going to take place until they happened and staff were notified in a giant meeting. If you missed the meeting, you just had to talk to people to figure out how things worked. My last firm had charts and graphs with datapoints and deadlines for this sort of thing. It's extremely doable, and makes a massive difference. I thought the pay raise was worth the move to this firm, but my spouse said I was SO much happier when I left. I basically became a different person. I cried one day if that gives youVery flexible on sick days. Paid training.Ate lunch at desk. Poor transparancy. Poor communication."
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) says"Professional and fun atmosphere, room to grow and reassess your career goals if that is what you choose to do. Exercise room available, paid garage parking."
Complex Litigation Assistant (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed working at this company until 4 years ago when additional mergers occurred. The environment has declined with so much uncertainty about the direction of the firm."
End User Support Specialist (Former Employee) says"The supervisor and coworkers were great. It was a difficult job and often thankless from the clients. The clients could be a little abusive at times. I always felt supported by my supervisor. Learned a lot."
