Busy busy and lots of support for training
legal secretary (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 14, 2015
The attorneys here have heavy caseloads and accordingly, the secretarial desks are very busy. The training is great if you know where to look/who to ask, but be wary of being thrown into the water without a life vest, initially. Everyone is fairly supportive, but you should definitely come with experience. Most everyone here is at the top of their game. Office is working on issues re management, and it is looking good so far. Associates are congenial, shareholders are a bit tough to get through. Hard to feel welcome when they call you "___'s secretary" instead of by name.
Regular meetings to attend to any issues that may come up, opportunities for overtime.
Sometimes mandatory overtime, impersonal corporate hierarchical culture.
