    "Really is one of the best firms to work for"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Asons Solicitors full-time

      Pros

      I have worked at Asons for three and a half years and I must say that I have loved every minute of it! The ability to progress within this firm is excellent and somewhat realistic and the people at Asons are probably the coolest bunch I have ever come across. I really admire the passion, dedication and hard work shown by the company’s directors towards the firm and its people and the way they reward and recognise success....

      I worked at Asons Solicitors full-time

      Pros

      When I first started with Asons what a firm they did everything to motivate staff, opportunities to progress were always available. There was so much positivity and bonuses were amazing then all of a sudden it changed

      Cons

      I worked at Asons Solicitors full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      great people to work with! these people are the only reason I turned up to work.. fun colleagues. the office is full of young individuals which made the working day bearable

      Cons

      everything else was awful! I cant stress this enough. money money money, maximising company profits is all that is cared about! clients are not the heart of the business. extremely target driven, sometimes unrealistic targets. very very very badly managed! the place is falling all over the show, lack of good management, a CEO who has minimal legal knowledge and not forgetting HR! HR is ignorant, fails to listen to...

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Asons Solicitors full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      - When I first started with Asons - wow what a firm - they did everything to motivate staff, opportunities to progress were always available. There was so much positivity around. There was also regular training and we pretty did what we want on files. Oh and bonuses were amazing and I personally achieved more in bonus compared to what I was being paid! Respect to Imran.

      Cons

      It is clear that the firm is experiencing difficulties! They constantly cut bonuses, too much pressure on settling files even though you settle like 5 the month before! If you want a cheque you need to get it signed by a Director, everything you needed doing needed authorisation from a HOD. It just got too much.

      Advice to Management

      If something is working - leave it! Stop changing things constantly and appreciate the staff you have.

      Pros

      Decent employees. It's difficult to see what else is positive.

      Cons

      Worked at Asons for 1 year long enough to know management encourages bad practice and ethics. All that I was promised during the interview was not delivered and they'll tell you anything to get you through the door. Management is exceptionally poor. And it's nothing like "google" as it's pretentiously claimed. They value quantity over quality and it's surprising this firm hasn't come to the attention of the law society...

      Advice to Management

      CEO and principal do not have a clue about running a firm and micromanagement is the order of the day! Poor management, pay and ethics. Not for long term stay. Micromanagement is rife!
