    6. 3.0
      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      People are generally nice - Business services are hugely underpaid and undervalued

      Pros

      The people are generally nice and friendly Lovely office and facilities Fairly good team/firm events

      Cons

      Business services staff are hugely underpaid and undervalued. Thanks is lacking and empty promises regarding progression and salary increases are constant. Business Services have been totally overlooked for salary increases for the past two years while the same cannot be said for lawyers.

      Pros

      Good place to work many of the support staff are friendly and kind. Made strong bonds, most people were nice.

      Cons

      Cronyism is really annoying and the way some of the superiors treat the support staff. I felt racism, getting denied opportunities I was more than qualified for but people were chosen were far less qualified, younger, and white and never worked there before. I gave the place good service but was denied opportunities to advance like everyone else. Manager was nice, but didn't care about the staff, I worked hard and had to leave because I felt it was a dead end. Unless you know someone and have an Irish name, you wont get a chance to work there and even when you get there you wont advance in the slightest. You're replaceable and likely to be exploited, at least thats what it was like in the end.
