    Great trial experience, can be a grind.

    I worked at Cole, Scott & Kissane full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, salary is decent. If you are competent, you get lots of responsibility early on and are taking depositions within a year. Dependent on your practice group, they are not afraid to take cases to trial, and you can get great experience. You get to work closely with senior associates, and sometimes with partners, dependent on the trial group. If you can survive, there is opportunity to grow in the firm, and as a trial attorney. Partnership track seems to be about 5 years, give or take.

    Cons

    The hours are a grind. First year associates are expected to hit big hours earl, and its a short road to 200 hours/month. Upper management cares about hours, hours, hours, and little else. They say they want you to build a book of business, but give little to no guidance, and tend to swoop in to "close the deal" if you do bring in clients. Associates can be viewed as expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its the little things that count. Donuts or bagels once a week would be nice. The associates are the lifeblood of the firm, upper management should not treat them so expendably.

    Associate Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cole, Scott & Kissane in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews on two separate days with two different partners. The second interviewer tried his best to be intimidating (on purpose). This firm does primarily insurance defense, and I was required to do an off-the-cuff closing argument during the interview with a second partner. I also had the chance to speak with one of the top associates about her experience with the firm.
