The company is very demanding. One day you could be resetting password, then you could imaging a loaner laptop for a senor partner on Easter Day. There are many wonderful people to deal with, but all days are stressful. There is always a fire to put out.

inconsistant policies for IT applied, many special one off situations

Document Specialist (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – July 18, 2017
Very stoic and clique-ish work environment. Upper management has allowed bad behavior of long time employees from partners to administrative staff run amok. If you're in the lowest level of the administrative staff, there is no room for advancement. You will be left to fend for yourself. Long time employees are unwilling to share knowledge and are very proprietary about their knowledge.

Shook was a good place to work with a great staff of good people. Very organized when it came to litigation and to delegate to the various departments. Heavy desk with the attorney ratio was 1-5, but always had 7-8 on your desk. So prioritizing and staying organized was a must.

Project Assistant - Pharmaceutical Division (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 23, 2013
Typical day at my job includes responding to emails and sending out emails to alert litigation team members to new cases received. I also update databases/spreadsheets to reflect receipt of plaintiff produced documents. The hardest part of my job is probably just trying to keep up with all the new case filings as they are voluminous. I enjoy catching mistakes and bringing them to the attention of the relevant people. Management is great at my current job as there is a great deal of autonomy.
I learned a lot about the law and how it works at this job
Document Clerk (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – March 19, 2013
I worked in the pharmaceutical department, and was assigned a major case which required me to be in a locked secluded room. It was exciting to work at this job, and see how the law functions. It was one of the best jobs I've ever had, and only left to start a family.
worked with awesome people, learned and was challenged
