Challenging and rewarding workplace with great benefits.
Legal Secretary (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 24, 2017
The workday began with administrative duties, such as managing calendars and sorting through mail. Later in the morning I usually had documents to edit. Afternoons were spent billing, writing and editing engagement letters, and entering the attorneys' time.
The hardest part of the job would be editing very complex documents.
At Linklaters I learned to take charge of my attorneys' needs independently, and to arrive at create solutions without guidance. The work culture is demanding but not unreasonably so, and managers usually take a fairly relaxed approach when assigning tasks. The atmosphere is much less aggressive than at some American firms. There's no yelling.
Great benefits, good work/life balance, challenging, competitive salaries.
Not much chance for advancement, communication between superiors and assistants not always good.
