Pros

One reason to work at the Travis County District Attorney's Office is because of civic duty. It is less pay than a private firm, obviously, but you also get experience at a young age that you could not have at a comparable size firm. You have the opportunity to seek justice, prosecute criminals and know that you are adding to the community you live in.

Cons

The pay is much, much lower than comparable agencies for lawyers. It is sometimes a thankless job in sending criminals to prison. The budgets, facilities and parking situation are noticeable. You sometimes feel as though you're fighting an uphill battle.

Advice to Management

No advice.

    Pros

    Benefits are great and the paid time off is unbelievable. You get almost 30 days sick/paid time off and you can take off when you need to.

    Cons

    however it is not very stimulating. It takes years to move up even and education doesn't matter much.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice them to communicate more to their employees about big changes rather than the day of. Also, some of your employees are more educated than those around them. Advancement should be given to more knowledgeable people instead of people who have been there longer.
