accounting assistent (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: fast paste work
Cons: narrow minded work place, everyone is better then you
I worked in accounting and it was a very stressful job. Lots of money coming in and going out. Making sure everything was balances. Staff was very hard headed. Everything was by the book. If they didn't want you there any more they would find a way to push you out. Its a law firm that is run like a prison. There are some good people that work there but if your there long enough, it changes you or you leave.

Great Job with Great People
Corporate Legal Assistant (Former Employee), Calgary, ABAugust 2, 2013
Pros: benifits, great boss
Cons: salary
My direct Supervisor/Lawyer was fantastic. I really enjoyed working for him, among the other staff in the Real Estate Department. As a employee in good standings, my dealings with Upper Management were very limited.

Typically, a day at work would start off by checking my emails and voicemails and responding accordingly. Checking My lawyers emails and doing any ground work in preparation for his arrival. While he was out of the office I would do any administrative tasks that could be done without supervision, and when he was in the office I would focus my time at the tasks given.

I initially started working here during Christmas season, while I was a student and they also prepicked me for my practicum. I enjoyed having the opprotunity to work in various areas of law as it helped me familiarize myself with the area I enjoyed the most.

Everyone was friendly
