    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Pennington Law Firm

    Pros

    Most of the lawyers, paralegals, and staff members are pleasant to work with. Some of the perks (gym membership, snacks, firm lunches, etc) are also nice. You're also given a parking spot in the garage connected to the building, and the firm is right on Main St.

    Cons

    I have no idea how people stand working here. They're basically pet lawyers for a major cell carrier, so everything they do is very dull. Staff members, especially legal assistants, are basically glorified mail girls who stand at copiers all day and stuff FedEx envelopes. It's incredibly stressful for absolutely no good reason. Yet everyone acts like it's such a great place to work and everything they do is so interesting and important. The owner is also an egomaniac who says inappropriate things to his staff members. He wants everyone to live in a fantasy land where his lawfirm is the best place to work. And it's not.

    I worked at Pennington Law Firm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing perks like paid gym membership, free drinks and snacks, Keurig, firm lunches, everyone is really nice

    Cons

    Boss is a devout Christian who also happens to be a complete hound. Don't work here unless you enjoy being sexually harassed on a daily basis. It's repulsive.
