    I worked at Arnold & Porter full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally nice people and very friendly, family type atmosphere esp. if you have tenure. Great benefits!

    Cons

    The new secretarial structure...not everyone has strong work ethics so workload was lopsided.

    Interview Details

    Rotated session between several interviewers. Each made the effort to portray the workplace attitude, which was very congenial and supportive. Impressed by the emphasis on work-social balance and overall well-rounded approach to employees. Interviews each lasted about half an hour, and the interviewers made an effort to make me feel comfortable.
