I worked at Fulton County District Attorney's Office full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Great benefits, flexibility at times, favortism if you happen to be one of the D.A.'s pets which is not based on performance, but being a blind company person. Highest paying prosecutor's office in state, if not the country.
Cons – Horrible management. Management has little or no trial experience. If you looked up micro-management in dictionary the D.A.'s picture would be underneath it. There is no training, reviews or mentoring. The caseload is inhumane without any support or relief. To add insult to injury you cannot dispose of cases without passing an act from Congress. Everyone but the blind "pets" is looking to get paroled from this place. Those who are making six figures hate it as well, but wear the golden handcuffs, so they are stuck as well. Once the job market and economy improve there will be an ever bigger exodus. Turn over rate is already ridiculous, people chose unemployment and huge paycuts over this "hell on earth".
Advice to Senior Management – Find other jobs and let new management with energy, experience and vision lead this office. Trust your ada's to do their jobs. Train and treat them well.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Fulton County District Attorney's Office
Pros – Paycheck
Experience in a fast-paced environment handling a heavy caseload with barely enough time to prepare
Cons – Micromanagement
Raises almost impossible to come by unless you are a favorite of the District Attorney
No prosecutorial discretion WHATSOEVER
Advice to Senior Management – This system is broken. It needs a complete overhaul. Give the attorneys some discretion to handle their cases, instead of having to always seek the approval of their supervisor!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
