    I worked at Simpson Thacher full-time (less than an year)


    The people are very pleasant to work with. There is an overall culture that encourages respect for all employees, no matter the position. I never encountered screaming attorneys or any other abusive-type actions.


    There seems to be an assumption that the assistants don't have the ability to do more than just basic office work. The assistants should be given simple letters to compose. Or allowed to take on the responsibilities of tasks more complicated than faxing and scanning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some Associates should be encouraged to pass more complex work to the secretaries. There's no reason to waste talent.
