Toxic environment - stay in your box
Slow Network, old computers, outdated Software... need I say more ?
You will be hired for a specific job. When the tasks are done, do your filing slowly (or check Facebook), but do not try to help others or be creative: it will not be appreciated and some toxic staff will feel resentment toward you, making your work life difficult. Management will politely remind you that you should not stand out from your colleagues with your outstanding achievements. It's a shame, since some employees are pretty amazing and smart, willing to improve the way they work to gain efficiency and quality.

Great company
Didn't work there for very long, but it was a very positive experience. No constructive criticism to add. The people I worked with were very friendly and competent.

Poor working environment
There was a lot of infighting between accounting and the administrative assistants. The manager had no idea what was really going on. The environment was extremely petty. If you are support staff watch your back

Good place to work, good benefits and perks
Norton Rose is a great place to work - people work hard but enjoy competitive salaries and great benefits. The job can be challenging sometimes but that comes with the territory of working at a large international law firm.

Management needs to work on effective cross training
After a excellent PPR, +yrs of service & bonus, let go. Initially pigeon holed in a single role. When the firm restructured, workload changed & increased. Expecting positive results over a short period was unrealistic.
Pros
Fair pay, great benefits, good people overall.
Cons
Unrealistic expectations & lack of empathy during a trying time

Stimulant dans l'ensemble!
J'ai débuté mon stage en tant qu'adjointe juridique pour cette entreprise immédiatement après mes études et j'ai ensuite obtenu un poste en droit de l'emploi et du travail.

J'ai adoré mes premières années pour cette entreprise - Ogilvy Renault à l'époque! J'avais mon bureau face à une fenêtre avec vue sur le centre-ville! Mes journées étaient stimulantes, enrichissantes et bien remplies. Un bel esprit d'équipe régnait dans notre département tant avec les autres adjointes qu'avec les professionnels, les services et la direction. Les dossiers étaient très diversifiés et les questions soulevées par les clients pour une opinion juridique étaient toujours très pertinentes et même fascinantes.


Personnellement, je trouve que les restructurations récentes ont porté atteinte au précieux équilibre qui régnait dans l'équipe. Les coupures intensives au niveau du service de facturation ont fait en sorte que les adjointes se sont retrouvées avec une responsabilité administrative quasi totale au niveau de la facturation. Peu de temps après, il y a eu l'implantation d'un nouveau système de gestion des courriels qui, lui aussi, de mon point de vue, est venu alourdir le travail administratif des adjointes. Pour ma part, l'intérêt que je portais dans mon travail était surtout au niveau de la préparation des dossiers, révision des textes juridiques, assermentation des témoins, gestion des procédures, etc. Donc, j'ai trouvé cela plutôt pénible de me retrouver avec de nouvelles responsabilités administratives chronophages aussi peu stimulantes. Aussi, d'un point de vue strictement humain, j'ai

Lawyers have no respect for IT Services
I was working 2 years for this company . The manager answered very seldom to emails and/or phone calls . Lawyers and Assistants have no respect for IT Department .
You have the meetings set during your lunch break and compensation is free lunch.

There is almost no support from Management and Senior staff. In my two years they fired 7 people , replaced with 3. The training is formal. Knowledge is chaotic and outdated.
Pros
Free Lunch when attend meeting
Cons
Policy to let people go very often

Great work place to work
Great place to work and people are very nice. Depending in which department you work in, it can be extremely busy or steady. Lawyers are friendly and knowledgeable. Many fun activities planned for staff throughout the year.
