Great place to work; fast paced work but very friendly attorneys and staff so it was easy to "get the jobs done".
Legal Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 17, 2017
I worked for 4 attorneys at all times while employed at Ballard Spahr. My attorneys were all busy but their work always was completed within the time frame specified. With each deal I worked on, I made it a point to learn about the clients I was dealing with and the purpose of their engaging in a specific deal. I had a wonderful relationship with all our clients and was as helpful as I could be in answering their questions. In some instances, they never had to speak with my attorneys since I readily had answers for them that did not require an attorney response. The LAAs (legal administrative assistants) were set up in teams at Ballard so that you could call upon a team member if you were really in a bind, which worked out very well. The administration at Ballard was exceptional since they really cared about the employees, both LAAs and staff and were always willing to help if need be. The hardest part of the job for ME was the travel to and from Center City, Philadelphia, which put me in transit three hours a day. The most enjoyable part of my job was working for my attorneys and working along with all of my team members.
Health benefits were exceptional, discounts for various attractions, get togethers for everyone on certain occasions, Halloween, Christmas, football and baseball triumphs, etc.
None that I can think of.
