Pros

The work-life balance is about as good as you get in the American working world. You get a shiny badge because you're a prosecutor. If you like local politics, as I do, then you couldn't be more in the middle of it working anywhere else. And you get to work for the public good, which should make your mama proud.

Cons

The building in which the County Attorney is forced to have his offices is a piece of crap. You won't have a window in your office anytime soon. Some elected officials (not my boss, of course) have a job only because they managed to get elected---you will be working among them.

Advice to Management

Remember the passion you felt tin wanting to have a positive impact on the world and to leave a mark on it, too, when you were younger.

    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.

    I have been working at Travis County, Texas full-time

    Pros

    Fair pay, great benefits, and great time off policies. The move from my previous job to this one has allowed me to have a much more stable schedule. Everyone is willing to help you out if you have any questions, and management is very conscious of your workload and advise you on how to commit appropriately.

    Cons

    Only reason my overall rating is 4/5 is that the earning potential is limited, and pay raises are at a slower rate and drug out over a longer course of time when compared to the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up!
