My overall experience working at the Law Society is good. The work culture is good. Everyone is professional. Zero tolerance for any sort of human rights violation here. It's a well respected organization. My job sometimes can be very challenging but rewarding, as I get the opportunity to interact with some very important people such as Lawyers Paralegals, Judges, etc. Thecowwworking here

Stay away, senior management is bunch of hypocrites who will kick you out in the street in order to save few bucks, even if you have years of service.

Working at the LSO was a nightmare. Management was borderline harassing and micro managing. The stress level there was insane. Senior mangers were too busy to notice that their undervalued employees were being mistreated. Upper management is definitely overpaid for not having people skills. I would not recommend working here if you're looking for a advancing company. HR is probably the worse of them all except for a couple of level headed members. Most of them feel entitled and delegate the most simplest of tasks because it's beneath them. This organization is a mess!

The Law Society of Ontario has been recognized for nine consecutive years as GTA top employer and there is a good reason for this recognition. In fact, there is a clear set of criteria to which the Law Society adheres. This translates in a nice workplace, where people show respect to each other, are friendly and helpful.

The information provided to new employees is well organized and presented professionally.


Social events are well attended by most employees and upper management,


There is support for the physical and mental well-being of employees, including yoga, pilates, mediation classes and lunch and learn workshops.


French classes are very well conducted.
Pros
Free French classes
Cons
Nothing I can think of
