    Nice people but very stressful!

    Mar 25, 2021 - Legal Assistant in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, co-workers were friendly and understanding if I needed time off.

    Cons

    Hours can be very unpredictable and demanding. I knew this going in but it still came as a bit of a shock (which is totally on me in all fairness). Just try to be honest with yourself about whether being asked at 5:00 PM on a Tuesday to stay until 2AM would bother you, because this role really doesn't allow you to say no.

    Typical Big Law Paralegal Experience

    Oct 12, 2020 - Lead Legal Assistant in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall everyone is very nice. As is typical, some attorneys are better than others. But my experience was an overall positive one. Pay is good and the hours are reasonable

    Cons

    There wasn’t much emphasis on career development or fostering a community among the paralegals. We were often not invited to the attorney events (happy hours, etc), but also not considered staff so we missed out on those events too

    High profile work, trainings for CLE credit, good pay

    Pros

    Partners treat associates with respect, which makes for a good working environment. Work is interesting and challenging. Pay is good.

    Cons

    The hours are very long. There are limited opportunities to make partner. There is a lot of uncertainty in law firms today.

    Pros

    There is good pay and overtime, good hours (9:30 start time), many resources at hand. Clean and comfortable working space.

    Cons

    Poor collegial culture, few perks, senior partners extremely hesitant to change technology which I believe resulted in slipping rankings. General atmosphere of unhappiness.
