Pros

Decent enough benefits, guaranteed employment, hard to lose your job if you're even reasonably competent. You are a public servant, and you're really doing something real.

Cons

There's not a lot of flexibility and honestly, a lot of the people you'll be working with simply couldn't get jobs in the private sector.

Advice to Management

Become more like the real world. There's too much micromanagement without the genuine experience to back it up. Rather than continually promoting those who don't leave, try to find real outsiders who know what best practices are.

    Pros

    Great work hours, substantive legal work, collegial atmosphere, variety of cases, travel to desirable locations for oral argument calendars, and more

    Cons

    Appellate work is monastic by nature so it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Travel can be a downside if it's not convenient for your family situation, but it's generally not that onerous and I imagine accommodations can be made now that oral arguments are live streamed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the g good work. From what I have experienced and what I have heard from others, the only major complaint about the job is rhe monastic nature of it, which I'm not sure can really be changed much, not any management issues.
