    Pros

    - Respect is given throughout - no one is too important to answer your questions;
    - Extremely intelligent partners who you can learn a lot from;
    - Reasonable with time off requests;

    Cons

    - Not all legal departments are created equal;
    - Not very transparent review process;
    - No well established training program.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees. At holiday parties and other events, make an effort to get to know paralegals. Give bonuses when a paralegal completes an important project or does an extremely good job. Raises seem arbitrary and offer little incentive to go above and beyond daily routine.
