I enjoy working for a good manager in a friendly job environment.
Associate General Counsel (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – July 8, 2017
A typical day at work would be responding to requests for legal advice, drafting and reviewing contract documents and advising the client on compliance/enforcement issues, drafting and interpreting legislation, representing the company as legal counsel in internal and external meetings, making educational presentations and generally learning new concepts and new pathways to success every day. The hardest part of any job I have had as legal counsel is when the client ignores or is hostile to legal advice and fails to listen, understand and comply with the law. The most enjoyable part of the jobs I have held as in-house counsel has been training and educating clients and enabling the client to accomplish their goals, both personally and professionally. I am seeking a workplace culture which is friendly and compassionate about work and dedicated to doing the right thing. I am seeking management that will listen to me, respect and trust my opinion and one who is interested in the advancement of its employee's careers and one who is sincerely interested in compassionate management and helping employees reach their own highest potential while maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
Flex time, respect for employee family obligations, employee benefits, interest in maintaining a healthy work/life balance, not tolerating employee rudeness to one another or to the client.
Politically motivated agendas, advancing profit over fiduciary duties to client
