Loved working in an office setting.
Legal Secretary & Secretary Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 1, 2018
A typical work day would be assisting attorney in administrative work. Hardest thing about my day was deadlines and trying to not miss my train ride home. Most enjoyable part was the people that worked there.
Pros
Salary, people and vacation and personal time
Cons
4 hours commute

Productive and fun work place with ping pong table and many social functions
Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 26, 2017
Overall it was a great place to work but from a legal secretary standpoint, the workload could, at times, be overwhelming. The management folks in Chicago Headquarters dictated the ratio of attorneys to secretaries and did not take into account the current workload status, hence, some secretaries were completely overloaded while others were not busy enough.

Very pleasant office environment
Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 9, 2015
Enjoyed working with the attorneys in assisting them in organizing and keeping documents. I learned different computer programs, setting up meetings, and working under pressure. Also, learned how to work in a group setting to help, not only the attorneys, but the secretaries when they had more work than they could handle.
Pros
very good benefits

High-powered experience working with top-level partner
Illinois Executive Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 10, 2014
I would likely still be a Jenner employee had not the partner with whom I worked left the firm for a different opportunity to serve the legal community. He would have taken me with him except for a promise he made to his previous assistant.
Pros
Highly professional environment
Cons
No opportunities for advancement

Good, productive work was done by all secretaries.
Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 7, 2013
Worked in a team environment for the last five years of the job. Worked for eight associates in corporate department. Shared responsibilities of the team with another secretary. The team environment worked because co-workers cooperated with one another. Prior to the team, worked for partners and associates in litigation. Was responsible for day-to day tasks for busy litigation attorneys including maintaining court files, creating and revising pleadings, entering time, handling disbursements and arranging travel. Also helped with overflow work when not busy. Learned a lot about software through classes offered at the firm.
Pros
Software training classes.
