Being scared of what might happen next

People were great, dedicated to their work, and extremely knowledgeable. The department I interned for had attorneys that genuinely wanted to see me succeed. They took time to share their legal experiences. Until now, some of them check in on me just to see how I am doing. Great place.

A lot of nepotism and incompetence but a very reliable job.
Clerk (Former Employee) –  OaklandMarch 10, 2018
Work here if you have to. The people are very kind even if they don't really know how to do their jobs effectively. There's also an exorbitant amount of downtime as everyone makes as much of an effort to do as little as possible as they can.

In the early 70’s the work environment was hostile.
