    I worked at American Bar Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in the legal professional generally speaking, the ABA provides a lot of great learning opportunities for staff. Working there has prestige value.

    Cons

    The benefits are good, but take home pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Re-think salary structure and provide more opportunities for motivated staff to rise in the organization.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Bar Association.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an in-person interview about a week after I had applied. I went into the office and met with two of the people who would serve as my supervisors. One of them repeatedly asked me about my political views and continued to do so despite my deflections. This seemed unrelated to my professional goals and a bit unwarranted. I was contacted two weeks afterwards to meet with a senior member of the staff and they contacted all of my references. One of the interviewers had interviewed someone else with my resume the day before.
