Paralegal Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Paralegal?

Paralegal in Austin:
"Pretty Much A Dream Job."
Pros: I like that I get to use my brain, instead of brawn (which is waning). There is purpose to everything I do, and I feel I am well suited for that purpose. I especially grateful that my job has a great deal of flexibility, since I have an chronic health condition and must work around treatments.
Cons: I'm doing a few activities that were not a part of my job description. I am having to create some projects from the ground up, but sometimes feel rushed to provide results. I am spending more time supervising other employees than I expected.

Paralegal in Tucson:
"Flexible work schedule, complex tasks and responsibilities."
Pros: The freedom to work independently. I can always ask for guidance or clarification if I need it. Everyday is a learning process. My attorney provides the opportunity to grow in my career field.
Cons: I am the only assistant, no legal secretary or other paralegals. Only one attorney in the office. Not the most interesting area of law to work in.
