Like working for the nation's most important and largest law firm, with an incomparable impact on policy, regs & laws.

Reference Law Librarian (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at US Department of Justice part-time for more than 10 years

ProsA secure job with a ton of gifted legal and paralegal professionals, many of whom care about what they do so much that they forego much bigger-dollar salaries in the private sector. Much collaborative assistance and good professional development opportunities and training. Arguably the foremost location in the world for legal policy wonks.

ConsOften long hours and time pressures, but then that comes with the legal work world.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't cut back on your library staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
