Productive work place with very little supervision.
Paralegal (Current Employee) –  Houston, TexasSeptember 29, 2015
Relaxed but professional office atmosphere. Very little micro-managing by attorneys and managers which allowed employees to work at their own pace and complete assignments without having anyone breathing down their necks. Entire office worked as a team and everyone was friendly and professional to each other. Monthly lunch meetings helped the office become a team.
Pros
work schedule
Cons
politics in the work place

Legal Assistant to Partner and 3 Associates (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 16, 2013
My position for the majority of my tenure with this firm was with the Litigation Department working with three attorneys. I was also assigned to support the firm's Admiralty Law attorney. I particularly enjoyed working with the Admiralty Law attorney and his practice as this provided me with additional learning experiences in a field other than commercial and insurance defense litigation. It was very interesting to learn about admiralty law and I welcomed the challenge and in particular working with this attorney who was in the process of entering the mediation aspects of law.

My last job assignment was as floating senior secretary assigned to the entire Litigation Department and to continue as support secretary for the Admiralty Law attorney.
Pros
Excellent salary and benefits
