    I worked at Shearman & Sterling full-time for more than 5 years


    The training and education here is first-class, and the friendships created within a community of very smart and ambitious professionals, like the training, has long-term benefits and staying power.


    Long hours typical of a top-tier global law firm, difficult to have a "balanced" life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
