    I worked at Morrison & Foerster full-time (More than a year)



    Excellent benefits. Market salaries. Innovative employee review process.


    Refuses to give references for former employees but will not hire anyone who can't provide the same type of references during the initial hiring process. Poor job specific training.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Morrison & Foerster (Palo Alto, CA).


    I applied online and a recruiter contacted me 3 weeks later to schedule an in-person interview. I had applied for a previous position 4 months prior and had a phone screen/interview then, so they did not need to do another phone screen. I met with the office manager, marketing manager, and marketing director for the first round of interviews. I was brought in for a second round of interviews 3 weeks later with the CMO via video conference. A couple days after that I took a timed writing test. I received the rejection email less than a week later. They decided to go with another candidate who closely matched what they were looking for. Everybody I met with was very pleasant and professional. They were responsive and did not leave me hanging like other firms I've applied to.
