Paralegal in San Francisco:
"I love my job."
Pros: I work for two wonderful people. We mostly deal with divorce which can be one of the worst times in a person life and my personal goal is to try to make it less so. Both of my bosses try to find a way for couples to work together rather than have to go to court and we all try to find ways to reduce costs and help... I just don't know a lot of law firms who have that mind set, mind you I am new to the field and only know so much.
Cons: That is complicated and has more to do with an individual than the work I do. Sometimes deadlines come up fast and last minute work has to be done but once it is a done it's a huge relief.

"Perks."
Pros: The small atmosphere and the people that I work with. I enjoy being as busy as well. I don't feel as though I am pressured or stressed by my boss.
Cons: The lack of structural organization. A lack of incentive.
