Pros

The environment is enriching to anyone seeking to gain a sense of what is expected within the legal profession. Everyone is more than willing to help you along the way.

Cons

For some the environment can be deemed as a little conservative, but this should be expected within one of the largest corporate firms in Texas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice would be to create a more engaged system of communication among the employees, creating a greater sense of interaction can only enhance an already amazing experience.

    I worked at Baker Botts

    Pros

    Great vacation and benefits and a lot of flexibility to work autonomously for the most part. The people working there are also very nice and genuine.

    Cons

    A few attorneys can become a little egotistical at times, but otherwise most people are quite nice. Some more career development would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If upper management were to put more effort into training staff and having a more concrete career path for them, it would be very beneficial for the company.

    Paralegal Clerk - Interesting insights into legal profession, but can be tedious

    I worked at Baker Botts

    Pros

    As a paralegal clerk, it offers some insights into a big "Firm" for those considering law school. The people (attorneys, paralegals, support staff, etc.) at Baker Botts were very professional and kind. Some projects allow you to get some interesting perspectives on the true nature of legal work. If you think it's worth it, the sporadic, intense overtime can be offset by overtime pay.

    Cons

    The paralegal clerk's workload can get pretty tedious and overloaded at times, particularly with cases with sensitive deadlines. Expect monotonous work at times. Since you're just a clerk, there are times where you're not seeing the "big picture" of the projects you're working on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the clerks see the context of projects. Ensure clerk work is spread equitably.
