A student shares his experience on vault.com, "Quality of professors at Saint Louis University School of Law is hit or miss. Can be tough to land a good job even with good grades/journal etc. The degree doesn't hold much weight outside of St. Louis."
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"This place is horrible, only care about billing their clients for ridiculous things that in my opinion, is taking advantage of an already stressful and sad situation. Skip trilling out the hiring process for the place. They are Just looking for a warm body to take advantage of people at the worst time of their life. Run and don’t look back. Cons: No real training"
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) says"NO JOB SECURITY, no training, no support, they only care about billable hours. Management is awful. They have a terrible reputation in the legal field. Work there and quit once you are not meeting billable hours because there is no point of staying. Attorneys I worked for were great and tried hard to help. Although management is ridiculous. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Very high turn over rate. Employees are constantly changing. Stay away. Cons: Poor management, no training, no support, very high turn over rate"
Administrator (Former Employee) says"I gave this job some time, however it got worse with each day. I never write reviews but this place needs one. Don’t trust other reviews on here, they don’t care about their employees and are never willing to change for the better. Severe micromanaging and toxic work environment."
CLIENT INTAKE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) says"DO NOT apply for the client intake assistant position. Management is a mess, turnover rate is ridiculous, and while they tell you that you're helping people you are SCAMMING them. Worst job I've ever had."
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"Terrible nothing is a pro. Not worth it. Bad management unreal billable hours . Not happy here worked for 4 months. Not a very friendly environment. Pay not worth the work. Cons: Everything"
Senior Associate (Former Employee) says"They couldn't care less about you or the clients. You are there to serve management's needs. Work/life balance is non-existent. They treat experienced workers like rookies. Cons: Management rules by fear."
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) says"And they treat clients like they are just another number! Billing and power is all management cares about no respect for employees Cons: All"
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"Attorneys were nice but the requirement for billable hours would put you in competition with your attorney. And there was a very high turnover rate so it was hard to keep in contact with good resources. I was burned out in a month. I dont recommend it for anyone. Cons: Everything else. Bad management. Underpaid. VERY LITTLE PTO."
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"As others have mentioned, management is a mess, starting with the Director of Administration, who wears the description of bully like a badge of honor. Ownership is greedy and only cares about the almighty dollar. Firm meetings are near cult-like. Even if you part ways on good terms, do not expect to be given a reference by your immediate supervisors/attorneys - management/owners won’t allow it. Cons: Lack of morals"
Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Former Employee) says"Spent one day on training. Six hours were spent watching videos about "giving the customer the pickle" and company structure. When it came to training for actual position I was hired for, that was only two hours. The trainer was very nice but a lot was left unclear. Once in my new position, I was informed that I was not to contact anyone other than my immediate supervisor for answers to questions. Many times she was not available or was in a bad/angry mood and did not have time to answer questions. Less than two weeks into the position was written up for not meeting billable hours. This company focuses more on "busy work" and nickel and diming the clients than actually doing the work promised. Very high turn over. Do not expect to be supported in your position. Cons: Healthcare."
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"All employees serve administration. Legal support staff are the least respected and are treated poorly. Management is by threat, fear and intimidation. Doesn't matter which office you work in, everybody must endure the main office. Extremely stressful and oppressive environment, but they do pay well. Do not recommend, however. Cons: Horrific administration"
Office Support Staff (Current Employee) says"If you aren't an attorney, do not work for this company. They could care less about anyone who isn't a lawyer. Extremely high turnover rate, no pay raises, no advancement opportunities, and only a handful of full time employees. Cons: Management, lack of advancement opportunities"
Paralegal (Former Employee) says"The attorney I was supposed to be working for quit on my fourth day. It took a month to get a new attorney for our office. She did not delegate work. Cons: High Turnover"
