Contract Document Review - it's alright.

I worked at Special Counsel full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I enjoyed the atmosphere and flexibility of the job, the assignment I worked on did not allowed for overtime, but did not require it. The flexible temporary placement with them was nice as it still left me with time to focus on my continuing job search. I really enjoyed the people who worked along side of me, but that may be dependent upon the applicant pool.

Cons

Very little training before I started, sometimes hard to get in touch with the head of Special Counsel office, little to no possibility of permanent placement. A lot of times I would be told that there was a position available, but it would often fall through.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, people are friendly, pretty easy to get your work done while listening to podcasts or music all day.

    Cons

    Not always steady, sometimes projects end with very little notice, although the staff are good at rehiring and helping place you elsewhere. Very little chance for advancement unless you've been around a good long while, and even then it's not likely. High turnover.

    Pros

    If you are polished and have a strong skill set, they have plenty of opportunities for you.

    Cons

    Recent graduates or people with less experience will have a tougher time getting placed, unless it is a document review project.
