    I worked at Skadden Arps full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working as a legal assistant at Skadden is a good job for someone right out of college. Depending on which practice group you land, the work can be engaging, challenging, and even exciting at times. Co-workers are smart, driven people, and the firm's values are on point (provided you have socially liberal leanings).

    Cons

    The downside of working at Skadden, as with any Big Law firm, is that it's often a grind. Hours can be long, with lots of nights and some weekends, often with little notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more than pay lip service to work-life balance.
