    Pros

    The people are amazing. The office is fun. The opposing counsel are generally congenial because, Tucson. Benefits.

    Cons

    The pay is garbage. This generally means the staff are HORRIBLE unless they've been here a while and they're just here to retire for the pension.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap. Give raises. Keep good staff and attorneys in the office. Also, stop lying about compensation being set when raises are given at the discretion of the section chiefs.
