I worked at Friedman LLP full-time
FLLP has a fun and friendly culture. You can become great friends with all different levels - managers, principals, seniors, and partners. It truly is an "open door policy" there. Social events make up for a rather dry line of work. These include happy hours across the street, field days, golf outings, intramural sports after work, etc. There are great leaders there who are more than happy to mentor you right out of college and give you advice on your career inside and outside of the office. I learned a lot and made lifelong friends there.
HR department should not be and are not trusted by most employees. They lay off long-time employees out of nowhere as a surprise with no warnings.
Advice to Management
HR should rework their lay-off process to be more respectable. It makes them look sneaky and untrustworthy. After moving on to a company with a more than amazing HR team, you realize how much that department shapes the happiness of current and future employees, and thus, the future of the company. There is no need for intimidation. Lead by respect/inspiration and not fear.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Friedman LLP.
I went up to FLLP during a campus job fair looking for an internship. I had a brief conversation with a recruiter. They don't do internships, but they asked if I was interested in full-time and if I was available for an interview later that day on campus. I decided to hear them out even though I had my eyes set on an internship during graduate school. I had two interviews - each one hour long. I was impressed by the benefits, and the company culture seemed so great. I eventually decided to take the offer and rework graduate school plans.
