    I have been working at Corrs Chambers Westgarth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A big focus on culture, meaningful teamwork and ensuring everyone gets a variety of work. IT and systems are all new and work well. The proactive approach to staff safety and retention during the pandemic has only further supported the belief that the firm genuinely cares about staff. Very little politics and big recruitment focus on team fit and personality

    Cons

    Long working hours but that's a given in this role. This is managed well in terms of good after hours perks, facilities and management supervision of work flow. If someone has had an extended busy period, care is taken to manage that moving forward for better work life balance.

    Current Employee - Senior Paralegal in Brisbane

    I have been working at Corrs Chambers Westgarth full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The ability to work flexibly was openly available and used by many at the firm ( not just parents)

    Cons

    The group I was the management took a head in the sand approach and did not properly use the opportunity of a probation period for new staff and regularly had bad people stay and cause issues which others had to sort out.
