"Great place"Sep 16, 2019

Former Contractor - Doc Reviewer

I worked at Special Counsel for less than a year

Pros

You are not micromanaged here. Everyone is kind, and the snacks are great.

Cons

None at all. Great place.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work

Current Contractor - Document Reviewer

I have been working at Hire Counsel for more than 3 years

Pros

I love working at Hire Counsel because the managers are professional but very easy to approach and understanding. I meet other incredible lawyers and I rarely have issues but when brought to mgts... attention they are resolved promptly and professionally. The pay is great, free gourmet coffee and it’s across the street from the metrolink. Bernadette, Sharon and Florence in the LA office are fabulous! Be prepared to give a “honest” days work and be nice and respectful to your co-workers, after all we spend more time with each other than our family members and the time goes by faster when we are all happy and engaging.

Cons

Projects length is not always predictable.

Advice to Management

Devise a method to keep track of ladies bathroom keys assigned to each room.
