Productive and interesting. Friendly atmosphere
Pros: i like being busy and this job provided that.
Cons: the work load was enormous and a secretary's desk was never empty.
A typical day included opening the mail and sending any letters in response to what was received. Confirming the next day's activities (i.e. court events, depositions, client meetings). Transcribing tapes, scheduling and diarying attorney appointments, court dates, etc., answering phones and handling requests from insureds. Management was attentive to the needs of their employees and benefits were substantial. Co- workers were always willing to share what they knew in order to help and assist others.
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the volume of work produced by attorneys.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interaction with attorneys and co-workers who were always available to help out in any way they could.
