    Pros

    Great place to gain trial experience. Most of the people are great to work with. A very collegial atmosphere among the younger, lower level AP's and some supervisors. I would recommend this as a great place to gain experience in a courtroom but keep your career aspirations in check.

    Cons

    Office politics rule in this place. Whether or not you are favored depends less on your work product and more about who's in charge at any given time. The higher up people go in the office, the less trust you should give them.

    Pros

    Just the benefits are the only pros

    Cons

    They don't allow room for growth. Horrible place to work for. They don't care about their good employees and only move around their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to those employees that really work hard and really care about working instead of moving up those that don't care and don't work. Too much favoritism and nepotism

    Pros

    There's absolutely no pros, you can't wait to get home.

    Cons

    There's no structure, and completely unbalanced on a professional level. No supervisor is ever present, and people feel asif they're entitled to overstep their title.

    Advice to Management

    Please, get a grip.

    Pros

    PTO, still offers a DB Pension.

    Cons

    Unprofessional from the top to the bottom. The employees mirror the clients.

    Advice to Management

    Hire consultants to teach to the latest Management Techniques to Administration. Come out of the bubble and move into the 21st Century with the rest of the world!
