Contract Attorney (Current Employee), Cleveland, OH – May 13, 2013
For the last 10 months, I've been working in the basement of a large law firm, performing a wide variety of document review work. In general, it's a stress free job with great scheduling flexibility. My co-workers have been very nice and I've even become friends with some of them.
The downside: the work doesn't make you feel like a "real" attorney, you can't count on any sort of job security, and there isn't really any potential for advancement. Whenever a co-worker lands a "real job" and leaves, we give them a send-off party, knowing they're moving on to bigger and better things.
The people at Major Legal Services have been kind, courteous, and professional. It's been a pleasure working for them. Also, I'm very grateful that they provided me with employment upon my return from a trip to Asia, when I had no job and no one to really turn to.
