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

Pros

Will hire with out of state law license.

Cons

Pay is low and attorneys are treated like a commodity rather than employees. Permanent staff seem overworked and disengaged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out a way to treat attorneys like valued assets and moral and retention will improve.

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

    Pros

    The firms that I have worked with through this agency are top-notch. The staff at SCI is professional and responsive. If you are professional, hardworking, and are liked by the firms, they will keep you working.

    Cons

    Communication regarding the length, duration, and start of projects are sometimes lacking--- which is understandable because they are also dealing with the firms who are dealing with the client and the electronic services provider (and so it goes..); however, They should try to get information (even if it's simply that they are awaiting information from the client etc) over to contract attorneys who often times waiting "in the dark." The insurance that they offered to Consultants was terribly expensive and awful. They have now eliminated the insurance due to the Affordable Care Act' Health Exchange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuing pursuing and maintaining great relationships with great firms.

    Pros

    Company has great resources to enable its employees to succeed. It is a challenging work environment that pushes people to perform their best.

    Cons

    There will be really good months for business as well as very slow months. Must be prepared to deal with both ends of spectrum.
