    A great job out of law school

    AAG (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsAbility to work in virtually any type of law practice - litigation, health care, finance, consumer protection, criminal, labor/employment, torts, client advice, appeals, etc. Work regular hours and see your family on a regular basis.

    ConsSalary is not competitive; after 3-10 years many AAGs leave the office for better paying opportunities - in the public or private sector. Especially true for Seattle AAGs, where the cost of living is substantially higher.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Learned Alot....But...job situation never developed

    Consumer Complaint Mediator (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsLearned alot about various consumer scams...enjoyed educating consumers as to how to avoid them. Would love to continue with this position as a paid employee, but this did not come about because hiring is so limited due to budgetary considerations.

    ConsCould not get beyond paid internship status

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to asses interns as though they are employees then hire them

    Great Mission - Overall Good Colleagues - Some Staff Problems

    Paralegal (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsWork/Life Balance, good benefits, and some divisions have more interesting work than others.

    ConsLayers of bureaucracy, poor staff supervision, staff issues regarding entrenched employees that have been there for years and couldn't get jobs in private sector and are poor performers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the employees who are milking the system. That will improve moral and efficiencies.
