    I have been working at Oregon Judicial Department full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits for the work being done. No real skill required. Easy to get friends and family jobs... assuming you hate them and wish them to share in your misery.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility. Unmotivated co-workers that are simply there to collect a paycheck until they can retire. Even the most motivated and hard working people eventually have their souls crushed and simply give up and either get lucky enough to find other work or slip away into mediocrity for the rest of their lives. There are two types of management... neither are effective in the slightest. 1: Those... that bury their head in the sand and pretend like problems will just go away. 2: Micro-managers that make their employees lives a living hell.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting imbeciles with no leadership ability. Understand that you don't know as much as you think you do when it pertains to the actual work being performed.

    I worked at Oregon Judicial Department full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Experience with the law and the legal system. You cannot find a better opportunity to view the legal system before entering practice. The ability to interact with the public, lawyers, and judges is invaluable for your career as an attorney.

    Cons

    Low pay. Being a local court, the ability to find jobs outside the area may prove difficult.
