    PT Student Worker/Intern: HQ Corporate Legal Department Houston, TX

    Student Worker/Intern - Legal Filing (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsI really enjoyed working here part-time for a few months while I was in college. The legal and corporate executives were very friendly people who allowed me to keep a flexible schedule around my classes.

    In sum, I appreciated:
    Friendly people
    Flexible schedule - I created my own
    Nice corporate office
    Great central location

    My supervisor always made sure I put my academics first and would check in to make sure I had a good balance in my schedule between work and school. I could take time off or change my work hours when I needed to - no questions asked.

    ConsNo real big downsides that I can recall, however I was not employed full time or permanently so my experience is limited.

    I imagine that if I worked in the C-suite over a long time could get boring? I'm personally not a classic "corporate exec type".
