    I worked at Kaye Scholer as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    We were treated like humans, given free coffee, given free access to the Internet, not under constant surveillance, not pressured to meet productivity goals (such goals rarely make sense anyhow), given comfortable office space, and allowed to set our own schedules.

    Cons

    As a contract worker, we had no benefits or job security. Some team members were more productive than others, but the less productive ones never seemed to face consequences for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a contract worker, we had no benefits or job security. Some team members were more productive than others, but the less productive ones never seemed to face consequences for it. The people, including the junior attorney and senior attorneys were generally very nice. I never had any bad encounters.
