I worked at Skadden Arps full-time (More than 5 years)
Incredible mentoring at the Palo Alto Office, and by amazing Partners. Kenton J. King, Gregory Smith and Celeste Green are incredible negotiators, strategists, lawyers and mentors who always took the time to involve associates, even first years, in each transaction. I left SASMF with an amazing deal sheet and more M&A experience than my peers at other firms, I consider my former coworkers to be some of my best friends to this day (amazing what looooong hours will do for the esprit d'corps) and now, as in-house counsel, SASMF Palo Alto is the first firm I turn to for advice, guidance or referrals. I cannot recommend this firm highly enough; I feel very fortunate to have begun my career here.
Frankly, you will be able to choose 1-2 priorities outside of work. Just know that even those priorities will be compromised by the workload. You get amazing experience, but you will work long and hard for that experience - I had a ton of fun and loved SASMF, but working there did come with major sacrifice in my personal life.
