    Former Employee - Corporate Paralegal in New York, NY

    I worked at Cleary Gottlieb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No micro managing. Over time you get to pick and choose what deals you want to be on -- after developing relationships with associates they will specifically request you or you'll even be "adopted" by specific practice groups

    Cons

    Hours can be tough, but that's what to expect at an international law firm like Cleary. You're working for and with the most demanding clients and colleagues. No mobility unless you get a JD.

    Advice to Management

    Pay paralegals more, especially the leveraged finance coordinator
