Volunteer Assistant Attorney General (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 31, 2018
Team and office are excellent, I wish I would have stayed longer but there were no job openings. I also had issues passing the bar exam but the staff had excellent suggestions to improve for next time.
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.
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.
Assistant Attorney General (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 14, 2016
The current administration is vicious, vindictive, morally corrupt and they constantly micromanage. There are too many cons than pros. The last 4-5 years the turn over has been increasingly and insanely high because of the new administration. The chiefs micromanage and take credit for your hard work and leave you out. If you're not liked by the higher ups, they will make your life a waking nightmare. The workplace morale is low, LOW. The AGs office looks great on paper if you want to go to the District Attorney Office after Law school and need the experience. But unless you play by their rules don't expect to be recognized for hard work. Co-workers are good but management is unprofessional and unpredictable
Assistant Attorney General (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 18, 2016
The Litigation Bureau of this office is a great place to work for if you're looking to increase your civil litigation experience. Note, however, that the low pay and limited office resources create a high level of turnover among the office's junior attorneys.
Budget and Fiscal Management Bureau (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 3, 2015
The blend of cultures, different level of educations, professional ethics, personal intellect - all created overall pleasant environment to work. However, it is time to move toward personal goals in addition to desire to utilize professional and education skills and implementation of diversified experiences.
