Pros: learned different programs not used in the legal field.
Cons: accounting background was need for this job
Coming from a legal background to a completely different working enviroment was difficult. I had to learn more than the basics of Excel as this was the main source of my work. As well, I dealt with a lot of our smaller offices in remote areas of Canada (Nunuvat/NWT)
My co-workers were very helpful and understanding. As daily meetings with different departments were required, I found this to be one of the more challenging parts of the job.
Unfortunately, the job was taking on a more "accounting" type feel and coming from a legal background, the fit was not there.
