Intellectual Property Litigation Paralegal (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – April 3, 2018
Dechert LLP is a pretty high-paced firm with offices all over the world. The attorneys at the firm are hard working and expect the paralegals/support staff to work hard as well. With that said, Dechert is also a nice place to work. Most folks are kind and will explain their expectations to you. There are a lot of social events and firm parties that make this a fun firm to work for. Overall, Dechert is a good firm to work for. It can be very challenging at times due to litigation deadlines and such but it is also a fun place to be. I enjoyed working there very much.
Wide variety of cases. Firm sponsored events/parties.

Global Word Processing Supervsior (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 5, 2017
Extremely stressful working as a Global Word Processing Supervisor. Responsible for the word processing work for offices around the world. Directly supervised 13 word processors to whom I had to deliver annual evaluations; and one on one communications at time about the quality of their work. I had to set up training classes as needed; meetings with other offices. I had to go to New York for 3 weeks to train their new Word Processing Supervisor.
Unlimited days off - very competetite and fair salary
Stressful - there was never any down time and their expectations were perfection every time.

Legal Secretary (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA 92614 – February 17, 2017
Top notch legal professionals and attorneys, under pressure to produce at all times. High focus on quick turnaround. Micro-manage all issues around time. Difficult to attend to issues requiring time off. Promotions within legal staff extremely difficult. Mid-level managers micro-manage. Communications improvement would be helpful.
