    Kind and intelligent attorneys

    I worked at Bryan Cave full-time

    Pros

    Senior partners are good people and good attorneys. While there were some bad ones (what office doesn't have that) overall I felt like they were very sincere and hospitable, unusually so for large firm partners. There was a real sense of camraderie and fun here, which was always deflated by the usual large firm slavishness to serving the clients' needs at the expense of our personal health and social life.

    Cons

    Below market salaries. Not an elite firm. The practice areas they wanted to focus on in my location did not grow as expected and they funneled us over to less glamorous work.

    First Year Associate Interview Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process is like any other for law students, however, they take you to happy hour afterward, and you, inevitably, let your guard down. The younger associates act like they're your friends, so you feel comfortable enough to ask certain questions or express concerns you might not have expressed with the hiring partner, which then gets you into trouble - for example, you may end up betraying that you don't really want to work at a firm long term, and end up ruining your chances of getting an offer. Don't forget - the happy hour is still part of the interview!
