SEC Attorney

3.0 of 5 stars

July 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Exciting, complex, and rigorous work. The workload is generally balanced and, in my experience, people are pretty collaborative. Hours and pay are generally great, especially if you are seeking a balanced lifestyle.

Downers

The politics can trickle down and depending on the politics, it can be disheartening, frustrating, and disempowering.

Advice to Candidates

It is all really dependent on the office or division you work for and which group within that office or division. It is a great place to learn and be exposed the exceptionally interesting work. Most of the people I have encountered on the staff, really care about what they do and are committed to the SEC's mission.

Advice to Candidates

The interview process is typically long. As you can imagine the government moves slow. I applied to several positions at the SEC and at times it would take months after a first round interview to have a second round interview. Many employees have this same lack of urgency - some attorneys take days to return a call or email, and other employees telework, but fail to answer their phone or respond to emails.

I would say however, that you should pay attention to the group you join as some are much better than others.
