Don't
Law Clerk/Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 February 2018
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.
Pros
Good staff
Cons
Many on mental health leave

We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry to hear your perception of our Human Resources Department, in particular.
There are many factors behind a decision for advancing a staff member internally. We have had many individuals who have been able to remain at the firm while advancing to other positions, at all levels, through our internal postings.
Aird & Berlis offers a great work environment and culture, which is evident in our low turnover and high morale. We continually strive to listen to our firm members so that we can enhance their experience.

Beware
LEGAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 August 2014
Beware of working here. Remember that you're just a number and easily replaceable. Management and HR are not on your side and if you have any complaints you are better off keeping them to yourself or run the risk of being fired,
