    I worked at Special Counsel as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working here provides you with the flexibility of practicing as a sole practitioner and interviewing for permanent employment. On most contracts, you determine your work hours after completing a day of training. Also, there are opportunities to work overtime on most projects and there is free parking depending on the location of the project. Lastly, the work environment is very friendly and relaxed. We get free lunches frequently!

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the job, it is quite difficult (almost impossible) to qualify for benefits like vacation days, paid holidays, sick days, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Provide at least paid holidays!

    I worked at Special Counsel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, people are friendly, pretty easy to get your work done while listening to podcasts or music all day.

    Cons

    Not always steady, sometimes projects end with very little notice, although the staff are good at rehiring and helping place you elsewhere. Very little chance for advancement unless you've been around a good long while, and even then it's not likely. High turnover.
