Overall, I have enjoyed my time working with the District Attorney's Office.

Paralegal (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsI have been blessed to work with so many great people who have shared their experience and knowledge with this newcomer. The cases that I have worked on are hardly boring and keep my busy. Unlike working in the private field, the attorneys at the DA's Office are down to earth and very friendly. The benefits are good and I have no reason to complain about the salary.

ConsSometimes it can be very stressful to make your deadlines, but that is true for any job in the legal field. Some of the departments can be more draining than others. Hearing the cases of sexual abuse can be hard to hear, but it is a part of the job. You gotta do what you gotta do so the criminals doing the abuse are off the streets. I also feel that more training is necessary.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough I understand cross-training is beneficial, I believe giving an employee time to master his/her position (at least a year) before moving departments is necessary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
