    I have been working at Special Counsel as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    May get hired quickly based on need/urgency. Hours are flexible, depending on the project, you can make a decent amount, no strict rules on dress code (for the project I worked on), good way for attorneys to work between permanent jobs

    Cons

    Work is quite monotonous. Little human interaction. Pay is not that high, No health insurance until 6 mos of service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to negotiate higher pay for contractors.

    Access to top employers and law firms.

    They are the front line in negotiating salary, so there is some loss of personal control over that aspect
