I have been working at Nevada Legislature full-time (Less than a year)
Great bipartisan camaraderie and exposure to Nevada's power brokers and legislative process. People seem genuinely happy to be here and part of this institution. The work can be very intellectually stimulating if your legislator empowers you to do share in the thinking responsibilities in the office. Otherwise, can be fairly standard secretarial work. Being an attaché is very different from working as a proofreader or as committee staff.
Overtime is capped during session. Technology lag. Change comes slow. How much work you do depends on whether you're in the majority, and then whether your legislator is a committee chair, or on what committees s/he serves.
