co-workers made me feel welcomed and allowed me to grow as an individual. They were able to help me in any given tasks if needed. It is such a diverse environment where it allowed all individuals to share their own thoughts and creativity.

Easy going environment people are nice. Just too dependent on the people not a proper structure. If someone is away all the work piles up or falls on to the back up person which can be stressful
Pros
People are nice
Cons
A lot of repetative, and data entry work

Great team, but slow environment. It is a law firm, however, so accountants cannot expect too much.

Learned how to reconcile billable hours with master files.

I enjoyed my time at Cassels, Brock & Blackwell. The work was diverse and at all times interesting and fulfilling. In the Real Estate Department we handled subdivisions and condominiums as well as large mortgage transactions on behalf of Lenders and Borrowers. I handled a $100,000,000.00 mortgage refinancing of 13 properties in Ontario to its completion in a six-month time frame. Eventually there was a shortfall of $7 million which entailed arranging additional mortgage financing on another property. The most difficult part was co-ordinating preparation of some 48 discharges of mortgage in a limited time frame which was completed with the help of three other law clerk co-workers and the Corporate Department of the firm. The most enjoyable part was the successful completion on behalf of the Borrower.
Pros
Efforts were apreciated.
Cons
Long hours were required.
