Worst Law Firm EVER!
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS16 May 2018
Rude pre-madonna lawyers who talk down to assistants, heavy workload with high stress, terrible pay. They wont provide a reference for future employers, so you're basically wasting years at a company and you'll have no reference. I did a great job and made this firm a lot of money with my billable hours, but they treated me like a dog. A bunch of snobs and ingrates. Don't work there. You'll regret it.
Pros
Absolutely nothing
Cons
Invest in deordorant for the stress sweat, and adult diapers because you will be so busy you can't leave your desk.

Great Employer
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS8 September 2017
The firm feels like a second home. The people are friendly and personable and the company treats their employees very well. Management wants you to feel appreciated. I found work was usually very slow or very busy not much in between.

Great place to be!
Technology Training Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS7 July 2017
Generally Stewart McKelvey was made of great people. Any job is a job, but they made it a great place to work.

Challenging, never dull though a bit slower moving compared to the technical world.

My favorite part of the job was absolutely how everyone had a name, not just a designation. The culture was one of family, and it was a welcome experience to be part of that family.
Pros
Various parties, recognition for hard work
Cons
Parking downtown is difficult
