I have been working at Counsel On Call as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Counsel on Call attorneys are usually very easy to work with. The working environment is friendly and laid back. Even better, free lunches are provided once a week and snacks/soft drinks are always available.

Cons

Work is project-based and therefore there are 2 week to 1 month+ periods with no available work.

    Pros

    Flexibility is the biggest advantage. COC also pays better for document review than similar firms, and I understand COC attorneys are more accurate reviewers.

    Cons

    Due to nature of contract work, you are essentially treated like a booty call-very little to no notice that projects are starting or ending, and everything is on their terms with no room for negotiation. No room to advance. Too few substantive projects--just a doc review factory at this point.

    Pros

    If you're new to an area with no contacts and need income, a good way to get in the door

    Cons

    As a contract attorney, it feels like you're a second class attorney
