    Current Employee - Contract Attorney in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Donovan & Watkins as a contractor

    Pros

    Generally easygoing, fun coworkers (usually)

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous (though most people do realize this when they sign on to a project) and end abruptly - you never know when you're going to be out of a job; some coworkers can be downright crazy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give us some idea when we can expect a project to end - I'm pretty sure there are very few people who would steal information or trash the place just because a project is ending. Anyone who has been doing this for any amount of time knows that the project has to end at some point.
