    I worked at Phelps Dunbar

    Pros

    Phelps is an amazing opportunity for a paralegal to do substantive work with a top National law firm. Billables are in line with most major law firms. Knowledgeable and highly respected attorneys. The firm recognizes the value of paralegal support as a vital component of its business and treats them accordingly as members of the professional staff. Management is generally fair and humane. Good employees are... recognized and efforts to retain them are made in its daily culture. As a paralegal, you are given the latitude to do your job as the professional you are, without hand-holding, micro-management, etc. Decent benefits. Nice 401(k) with vesting. Firm gatherings and parties are terrific, with no expense spared to ensure that employees and their families have a good time. Good people that becomes like a second family. Great place to work.

    Cons

    You have to pay for your own parking, which is a little expensive. Paralegals are "hourly employees," and so overtime is discouraged unless it is approved in advance. This inhibits one's ability to own a case and work it the way it should be worked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
