    Former Employee - Legal Secretary in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Andrews Kurth full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Four-day work week. Learned many new laws. Attorneys I worked for great. Two procrastinators. Wait until end of day to decide to work. Good perks in the beginning now they are taking away. Four on one situation. Three on one better. Some ate not self sufficient so not realistic. Not enough coverage for funneling out work.

    Cons

    No tact, compassion - doesn't think before she opens her mouth. Keeps new people from working there. Can work you to death if you let them. No flexibility or caring though they say they are. Things changed drastically from year one to year eighteen and not for the best. New management has a very Im better than you attitude just because they have s JD.
