    I have been working at United States Court of Appeals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most important cases, best court houses, and most interesting people are in the Second Circuit. For the intensity and being at the center of the legal world, one can still manage to feel some work life balance.

    Cons

    The courts are quite bureaucratic from an administrative perspective and the judges are demanding, but it comes with the territory.

    I have been working at United States Court of Appeals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are nice and the working conditons, at least at my unit, are excellent. Contrary to most IT jobs, you are not expected to work extra hours. Excellent benefits by today's standards. Job security. Very little abilityof management to reward excellence with increased compensation.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, as would be expected. No civil service protecton.

    Pros

    This company pays on time, has good benefits and hours, and appreciates their employees

    Cons

    Congress can't seem to make a budget, and the company is always working on continuing resolutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always appreciate your employees, especially the staff. They are the foundation.

    I worked at United States Court of Appeals as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working in the district court allows you an insider look of the judicial system, gives you opportunities to meet with judges that you may practice in front of later in life, and refines your legal research and writing. This also looks great on a resume, as not everyone has it.

    Cons

    To be honest there is not many cons working here, except maybe that it is generally always unpaid, no matter where you go. The pros outweigh his by a long shot.

    Pros

    The Seventh Circuit hires great people. I was a law clerk for one year. My co-clerks were excellent. The judges are great to work for and very collegial with one another.

    Cons

    As a law clerk, you don't have a lot of opportunities for a long-term job. My clerkship was just one year long.
