    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Dechert full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility; big cases; relatively laid-back culture

    Cons

    Very difficult to get meaningful experience early on. Inconsistent work flow.

    Advice to Management

    Practice groups need more structure. More substantive opportunities should be available.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dechert (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had my first phone interview about 10 days ago. By the end of the call, my interviewer told me that I had made to the second round and that a hiring manager would be in contact to schedule a face-to-face interview. I have not yet heared from the firm although I sent an email a few days ago.
