Overview

Time Served exposes the writer's opinion that law firms are among the most unhealthy working environments in existence in the United States. As the dark side of human nature would have it, a warped seed was planted long ago into the minds of the elite, who have since believed they, as masters of their profession, can protect themselves from any wrongdoing. The ego continues to entertain this crooked idea, as is evidenced by the continual testing of boundaries. The seed's resulting blossom of evil behavior continues to germinate from one generation to the next, evolving naturally along the way. The resulting fly trap was probably never intended to be so harmful, yet it will not be denied its creation and continued practice. On the brighter side, there is a way out!

    Complete waste of time and money

    I have worked at a major law firm for over 25 years, and have encountered my share of "characters" through the years. I thought this would be an interesting read, but I was very very wrong. The impossibly dysfunctional employee in the book wanders from job to job (to job) endlessly, incredibly encountering bizarre and even perverse people at every single one. Truly unbelievable.

    I have worked at many jobs in this law firm, including managing a floor of staff and now running my own department. The firm works hard to maintain a very positive working environment, and anyone guilty of the bad behavior outlined in this book would be asked to leave the firm - period. I love it here, and most people here would absolutely agree.

    Also, the book is so poorly written and filled with typos that it is torture to read. I was also appalled at the nasty and mean spirited nicknames for people the character disliked, for example "Large and in Charge." Do unto others? What goes around comes around??

    Don't bother - I wish I hadn't.

    A LONG-AWAITED REVELATION! EXCELLENT; RECOMMENDED READ!

    A LONG-AWAITED REVELATION! EXCELLENT; RECOMMENDED READ!

    Very well done; and I can clearly see the negative reviewer (who keeps appearing on other sites) recognizes themselves as a character in the novel. Likely, Large and In Charge!

    A must-read! Don't be strayed by negative words written by a former co-worker!
