“Well there’s a few things that I really like about working at Lindsay Kenney. What I like about working at Lindsay Kenney is the atmosphere, the people I work with, I just find them really enjoyable and friendly.
My favourite thing about Lindsay Kenney is definitely the feeling of being a part of a family. It’s a team effort that you will see so many people from different countries with different experiences and they are more than happy to help you in any situation.
I like that they understand work-life balance. We work here long days sometimes, but they understand that sometimes things come up outside of work so there’s always flexibility with scheduling. Even if one of us is not in the office, other people can cover that person and help to solve that problem or answer that question right away.
Because we are a medium sized firm it is great because I get to travel and get to know both offices, both the staff and the lawyers. We assist the lawyers and their teams in providing the best possible experience and service for the clients. We have to have, you know a good working relationship with everybody. You know both offices, whether it’s Office Services, Accounting, or Litigation. I work with partners, and other paralegals, and legal assistants, and other departments but it is really a team environment.
It’s actually grown quite a bit in the years that I’ve been here, but it feels like a small firm, it feels really intimate. Everybody knows everybody, and we all pitch in and help each other out. The nicest thing that you can see here is that people will find time to help in finding the best solutions and finding the best way to solve the problems. It’s really nice to be able to go to your co-workers and ask questions, maybe find solutions to problems that I wouldn’t be able to figure out on my own.
We need to work together to provide the best service for our clients. Lindsay Kenney pushes their staff to take on school, training, new experiences in different departments. They really talked to me a lot about where I want to go in my career so I don’t feel stuck. They try to help you as much as they can, so, while you can stay in the firm, you can also progress and grow as the firm grows.
All the people in management here were very supportive when I went to school, and even when I came back it was like being reintegrated and just feeling like part of the family again.”
