    I have been working at New York Court System full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great work/life balance (9-5 with weekends off), mostly great coworkers, good vacation time, job security, etc. This is a great job if your job isn’t your life - as in you work just to support your life outside of work. Don’t expect to change the world with this job.

    Cons

    Some judges are on a high horse and act like they run the world. There is a lot of red tape to navigate through. Hard workers aren’t really rewarded or recognized. It’s more about who you know

    I have been working at New York Court System full-time

    Pros

    If you want to enhance your career slowly, this could be the best place for you. I am working in the software they use for court activities called UCMS. Takes time to learn the system but once you know it, everything is easy. Really good and helpful staff workers. Job security would be the first in Pros with interesting work life.

    Cons

    The software they use has been in development for many years and they are still improving it and managing really good but no major changes for next couple of years as enhancements to the system comes when there is law changes from government.
