  • FCC Law Jobs: Great Work-Life Balance, Good Benefits

    Former Employee - FCC Lawyer in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - FCC Lawyer in Washington, DC

    I worked at FCC full-time


    Great Work-Life Balance
    Good Benefits, e.g., health care, etc.
    Much more pleasant than working in a big law firm.
    No need to worry about billable hours, client recruiting, etc.
    Work is in the public interest.


    By big law firm standards, compensation is not high.
    Work can be repetitive and sometimes dull.
    Not a very social work environment, e.g., no after-work happy hours. A con for some people, but not for others.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I applied online – interviewed at FCC.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews - one primary and one in office. Interviewer was nice but asked tough questions about my writing sample and why communications law. We talked about each point on my resume, and the interviewer wanted to know what I learned from each experience. Interviewer was very detailed, not overly friendly, and was very focused on my experiences rather than making chit chat.

    Interview Questions
    • Lots of questions about my writing sample - what was my writing style, explain the writing sample, what writing style do you think is best?   Answer Question
