Great company to start your career in in any business services career. You get exposure to working with people from other countries. Leadership needs to be stable though.

Do not expect respect for work life balance in this firm especially with the current management in the finance department. There is no growth or training offered. Work is dumped on you as if you are a robot with little to no assistance or guidance from senior management. I developed severe depression and had no work life balance. Your concerns and wellbeing are not even addressed by ahR you are just ignored

As soon as you walk in the door there is work waiting for you and everything is urgent.
Management roams around while you have to do the hard work and they take credit for all your efforts.

If a mistake is been made you are held solely accountable and no one stands by your side.
Pros
Opposite Sandton City
Cons
No flexible hours

Attending to Human Resources related queries, assisting new employees with payroll documentation, and also arranging induction programs for new joiners.

I also assist terminated employees with the termination documentation before their last day in the office.


I work on letter of appointments which requires exceptional attention to detail which really makes the task enjoyable and hardest at times. I am involved in the recruitment process for support staff and assists consultants with administrative work

Down loading of bankstatement,
Allocation of deposits received


I learned that starting earlier, helps to get the days work done efficiently.


My co workers are very supportive, we are are a productive team.


Not being able to get clients to commit to making a payment is the hardest part.


Being able to reach our monthly target set, is the most enjoyable.
Pros
Incentives, free lunches
Cons
long hours

You can't really predict what the day will be like, because anything can happen on files so you need to just take the bull by the horns and deal with each query as and when it occurs.

Clients can be difficult at times and you have to remain professional at all times.


The most enjoyable part is if the client appreciates the work that you do for them
Pros
Happy clients
Cons
Stressful

One of the things Norton Rose prides itself with is having an open door policy. I found this to be of particular importance as an aspiring attorney and I had a lot to learn and had to be able to approach my seniors for assistance, which was quite often.

Everyone was treated with respect as a valuable member of the team which instilled self-confidence an enabled me to make the most of the learning opportunities granted to my. I was able to apply myself and improve also on my social interaction skills.
Pros
free monday lectures on various developments in the law, departmental outings, cocktail wednesdays.
Cons
very long hours at times
