I was wondering if there were any LA lawyers out there who could let me know what they think of their jobs. I'm currently in private practice, 6 years PQE, doing contracts, procurement and projects. I've seen a very interesting advert for a job with a city council doing projects, regeneration etc. and there are a lot of exciting schemes being planned. My instinct is that I would love the work, I've been looking for a move away from private practice for a while and the (I would imagine!) shorter working hours would be great.
The thing that is making me hesitate is a few years ago a good friend said LA work wouldn't suit me as I'd get frustrated due to the level of sign-of required and the delays this can cause. Do you find things are delayed or slow?
Finally, if I didn't like it, I wonder if I would be able to move back into the private sector one day - not private practice but in house. Anyone done this?
