    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.

    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 Management

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