Decent learning experience but BEWARE of a few individuals in the legal dept esp. B/D team. I'm quite sure the newbie will be treated much better NOW but people should beware and be cautious (keep eyes and ears open). The backstabbing, lies, and mistreatment (antagonizing, manipulating, demeaning, berating) caused me to abruptly resign, all due to certain individuals. The other departments are friendly.
Typical day at work: Extremely busy (all of which cannot be done within the 7 hour work day
What I learned: Learned about the financial industry and FINRA. Also how NOT to treat people and for some, playing the "game" and kissing butt are vital in order to get ahead. (My mouth can't reach my own butt so why should I smooch someone else's. Plus I'd rather kiss my own cause at least I know where it's been.)
Management: No comment
Co-workers: The majority of the Legal Admins/Assts staff - friendly; BD Team: As stated above - Beware; Other Legal staff except one - ok
Hardest part of job - being inundated with work, being rudely and continuously interrupted throughout the hours at work
Enjoyable part of job: receiving a paycheck which after some time is all this became to me - a paycheck.
