Law Intern (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – October 29, 2017
A small office with a good atmosphere. Easy to ask questions. Unfortunately it doesn't hire straight out of Law School anymore. Requires a few years of outside experience. Good introduction to how different departments interact in the Capital.
Attorney (Former Employee) – Suffolk County, NY – August 28, 2017
5 1/2 year ago the Suffolk Office was the premier place to work. The office atmosphere was dynamic. Fast forward I wouldn't recommend working there to my worst enemy. RD is a vicious, vindictive, incompetent bully. Office morale is at an all-time low. Huge office turn over due to the RD forcing staff out by making their life miserable. Upper management looks the other way. Current office manger is incompetent, a spy who rats on coworkers to the director and delegates her job duties. Current chief auditor is also an incompetent who delegates her job functions.
Document Specialist (Current Employee) – Utica, NY – June 29, 2017
Most of the attorneys were very nice. Hardest part of the job was working with the Microsoft Word templets. Best part of the job was that I didn't have to many restraints. I could go to the restroom at will. I learned a great deal about legal documents, the court system, and filing with the county clerks office.
Offered me an opportunity to work with legal documents for attorney court hearings.
No growth for part time employee placed by employment agency.
Legal Support Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 28, 2017
Not at all what I expected. For what is required they don't provide much. Management doesn't guide nor support. Notoced intensed spitefulness Nepotism, favoritism and bureaucracy. Smoke and mirrors. Pay isn't worth the headache and unfair treatment.
Supplies, no advancement, work life balance, no acknowledgement

Assistant (Current Employee) – NY – March 29, 2017
Been an employee for almost 12 years. I must say it's become progressively worse than better. I stay for the health benefits. The last two Attorney Generals didn't care about employees. I've seen so many people leave or get fired the last 3 years. Management is awful and turnover is high. I agree with the other reviews, pay is terrible. Unless they make up a position and high salary for you.
Intern Investigator (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – January 26, 2017
During my internship at the New York State's Attorney General Office, a typical day at work did not exist. Almost everyday, I was given a new assignment, a new duty to fulfill. I worked closely with the investigative team on confidential cases.
New duties everyday, learning investigative techniques.
