Legal Secretary (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 March 2018
I worked for a very busy corporate/securities lawyer. My typical day would start with a daily meeting with the lawyer compiling in priority all the work that I would need to do for the day. There was a lot of pressure in this position as time was always of he essence and deadlines needed to be met. If a deal was closing and it required staying late to get the job done, I did so. It was a very fast paced environment and exciting. I really enjoyed working with the entire team.

If you're looking for a human resources support in a time of need this is not a good firm for you. Any type of advancement involves mainly salary the lower of the salary get the position. Salary is low compared to other downtown firms . They do not give out bonuses throughout the year like others just a minimum raise in January. Staff is friendly and what keeps you going. My suggestion is to shop around other firms and compare mainly the money factor as that's what families in this generation need to look for in employment along with fair HR Department and fair management. Good luck with what you choose.
