White & Case
"Worked on a job at White & Case last week. Originally we were told in our interviews with the associate that it would be 2-3 weeks. Then on Monday, they came in and said that it needed to be done by Thursday. 4 days! We were given wrong directions, never shown how to properly code the system, and when someone accidentally went into the wrong documents, they didn't discover it until Friday. Total disaster!
The person who accidentally did the wrong docs, because of poor directions and incompetent feedback and planning on the part of the law firm, was told that she was not getting paid at all! On pay day, we were paid zilch, nothing! Payroll said none of our timesheets had been approved by W&C. Now supposedly they have, but we won't get paid until next week. I have been doing this for long enough and I have encountered a lot of underhanded things by agencies and firms, but never has a firm stooped this low."
