I cannot describe what the rest of this firm is like--I suspect it's a good firm to work for; they definitely pay well. But beware the estrogen-fueled departments.. There is gossiping, false accusations, and you can feel like you can do nothing right. Ridiculous deadlines ordered for massive, time-eating, boring projects. Menial tasks that should have 1-3 day deadlines are assigned 1-3 hour deadlines. No communication between the partners and the paralegals; you are just a high-paid little robot. Oh, and don't have any good ideas--they aren't interested and you'll be squawked at for even thinking of them.
Good wages and benefits, overtime if you want it, lots of food always around
