    I have been working at Orrick as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Although I was a contract attorney, everyone was nice to me. The attorneys I worked with were courteous and willing to offer advice on job search.

    Cons

    Too bad I was only a contract attorney. It was hard to obtain more jobs/tasks while working there, when I was willing and able.
