Co-workers are often helpful, but supervisors are extremely critical and unprofessional. You are not appreciated for the enormous amount of work you perform, and some supervisors believe it is okay to yell at employees and berate them in front of others. Micromanagement. No freedom to make decisions.
Support from management
Some supervisors are good, but most are not. You are usually worked into the ground with no thanks, no matter the effort or results. If you mess up, you will hear about it in the most non-constructive way.
Most employees will assist you will your cases, but some will not. Others will undermine you.
Freedom to work independently
On one hand, you must handle your own cases, but on the other hand, you are micromanaged. Very little discretion to do your job as a prosecutor.
Mostly left in the dark. Politics are at play on all levels.
Mostly female supervisors.
Attitude towards older colleagues
No issue seen
You get a lot of experience prosecuting 100s of cases and moving up in complexity. A lot of turnover always.
Overall compensation for your work
More than most DA offices in the state.
Office / Work Environment
Some offices are VERY cramped and have a lot of files.
Colleagues are good mostly, but management can be very tedious. You need THICK skin to survive.
You work an average of 60 hours per week. Do not expect it to be noticed.
Not well respected in the industry.
You can be fired at a whim, especially if you make a mistake or a choice contrary to management.
Very challenging - the volume and complexity.
Inclusive / Diverse
There is a variety of employees there. Some white behave lite elitists, and some are good. But there is disparate treatment at times.
Suggestions for improvement
- Trust prosecutors to do their jobs without overbearing oversight. Respect attorneys for the hard work they provide and the countless hours on the job.
What I like about the company
Working for the better good of society.
What I dislike about the company
Belittling of employees. Indicting cases that should not be. Max out sentences when not deserving.
