Typical at at work
Legal assistant/Secretary/Coverage Coordinator (Current Employee), Menlo Park, CAOctober 15, 2013
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
In the mornings, I begin by going through all PTO requests, calendar the requests, update the daily outlist, check the attendance hotline, if a secretary is absent, I quickly locate backup coverage for his/her team, and email the office administrator and the respective team. I also make myself available for assitance if it is required. Finally, I send – more... to the office the outlist.

I check the attorneys' calendars for any and all upcoming events, filings, etc. I usually email the team of any updates from the Courts, and deadlines to anticipate. We receive daily litigation calendar reminders from our litigation help desk. Those dates are always update on the attorneys' calendars.

In the afternoons, if there are any court filings, I turn my attention to those and execute the process from start to finish. When I am not required to perform any litigation-related duties, I check my to-do list for any administrative tasks yet to be completed.

Before leaving work, I check the next days' calendar for any upcoming deadlines and events. – less

Hard to get employment/advancement -- Lots of Favoritism
Admin Employee (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV - GOCJuly 29, 2013
Pros: free parking and benefits offered.
Cons: favoritism, gossip, hard to advance.
Benefits are nice. Compensation is fair. A hard firm to get in to, even if you've been employed by Orrick beforehand with good performance. Wheeling Branch tends to have lots of favoritism. All about who you know to get in and get any kind of advancement. Lots of gossip.

The company used a lot of contract attorneys to complete jobs. The attorneys are often laid off quickly after a project is finished.
