New York State Attorney General's Office-Volunteer Paralegal Internship
This is a good New York State Government Office to intern for. I learned a great deal while interning for the New York State Attorney General's Office. I would highly recommend this internship to those who are studying the law and the government.

A perfect place to put college knowledge to the test
I was able to learn things through this agency that I could not have learned in the college classroom. I spent the day handling consumer complaints about various businesses in the Buffalo area, as well as answering phone calls to consumers calling about their complaints. Completed standard office tasks.

Relaxed
Hours are not flexible, but you have job security. Hours are set however very little option for overtime. Overtime can be random and enduring, but that does not happen often.

Lots of drafting experience, interesting cases
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.

Horrific experience, awful people and management
Unclear expectations, zero support, virtually no training.

Relocated specifically for this position and then I was terminated when I requested time off for cancer surgery.
Pros
supposedly benefits, if you can tolerate working there long enough to accumulate them
Cons
employees are responsible for paid parking, NYS holds your first 2 weeks pay

Hostile environment, poor morale
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.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Poor work environment

Best Internship
This place was great to work for. I learned a lot and everyone there was so accommodating. I wish I could go back. The workload was enough to keep you busy but not enough to stress you out.

Productive and Quiet Environment
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.
Pros
Offered me an opportunity to work with legal documents for attorney court hearings.
Cons
No growth for part time employee placed by employment agency.

Nepotism, favoritism and bureaucracy
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.
Pros
Insurance
Cons
Supplies, no advancement, work life balance, no acknowledgement
