Examining Attorney (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

ProsWork from home full time after 2 years of employment; work from anywhere in the continental US full time after working from home for a period (maintaining a rating of at least "fully successful" required for both).

ConsProduction, production, production... The production requirements (equivalent to law firm billables) are as demanding as billing at a large firm -- only you don't get the large firm compensation for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust production requirements so that a rating of "outstanding" is attainable within an 80 hour pay-period. Unpaid OT should not be required to achieve rating goals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
