    I worked at El Paso County, TX part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was decent for being a entry level position. Being able to work downtown had it's perks. Paid holidays and having most holidays off.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement. Strict policy in regards to dress code, conduct, adherence to nonsensical rules. Holiday music that begins in October at unsettling volumes throughout the day.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at El Paso County, TX full-time

    Pros

    You will learn how to conduct a jury trial here. Many young attorneys don't have any trial experience, and you will be forced to think on your feet with limited resources. You will be a much better trial lawyer when you leave. This is the only reason to work here. Benefits are great with the county.

    Cons

    There are many things wrong with this office. There is a epidemic level of micromanagement in everything that is done. There is zero autonomy for the attorneys and everyone in the courthouse knows it. This makes it very hard to be taken seriously. There is extremely high turnover because the staff is overworked and supervisors do not assist in trial at all, despite being severely understaffed. There are some good ones but overall most supervisors will leave you to work on things by yourself only to Monday morning quarterback your every decision. There are too many cases for you to ask permission on everything. The attorneys have too many cases on their trial dockets because they have to run and ask a supervisor on every decision. This leads to cases just being set for trial instead of worked out. Supervisor's will force you to try cases not in the interest of justice but to avoid having to make a tough decision. The attitude is nothing can be blamed on you if you just try the case. Therefore you will end up trying cases with little evidence and sometimes look foolish in front of your peers. This behavior is rewarded. It doesn't matter if you lose. You will be working big law hours and with public servant pay in order to keep up. Office politics and not merit decides promotions. No one knows why promotions and demotions are really made and this adds to the already negative atmosphere. This job is good training but the work atmosphere is horrible and unless you have connections or know how to suck up you will not enjoy your time here. If you already have a good working knowledge of how to try a case don't work here. Management is the worst.

    I worked at El Paso County, TX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The County overly pays their employees. There is job security. The position is not really subject to layoffs or replacements.

    Cons

    The high pay comes at a cost such as limited benefits, overbearing management, and a seniority mindset. Management has a very petty attitude.
