Top tier law firm
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYAugust 5, 2017
I enjoyed my time at Hodgson Russ. It is extremely busy and fast paced. My workload was quite heavy, but I always had help when needed. Everything there is state-of-the-art and there are opportunities to grow and learn from the best attorneys in the area. The pay is average, the offices are nice, and they have a nice Christmas party, a summer picnic, and employee appreciation days.
Pros
Opportunity to be part of a prestigious firm
Cons
Heavy workload

Very good place to work
Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Albany officeApril 10, 2012
once you learn the functions of the office it is a beautiful place to work. The management is ok, the co-workers are beautiful, the hardest part was the learning curve and working with higher ups who thought they were more important then they were and were never satisfied. Personalty clashes out side of that everyday was enjoyable.
Pros
the staff
Cons
egos
