    Good company as long as you know that it's a law firm.

    I worked at Skadden Arps

    Pros

    Great environment
    Great people
    Great amenities, even for the support staff
    Matching 401k
    Support staff aren't entirely overworked

    Cons

    I worked overnight as support staff, so it was normal for me to see the amount of work the attorneys put in. It just seems unfair: if you're in at 9am I shouldn't see you at 11am.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Skadden Arps.

    Interview Details

    obtained an interview via law school interview program. the staff was welcoming but the offices were extremely intimidating. the interview itself was quite brief - i met with two lawyers independently - and it felt more pro forma than a serious interview. i specifically met for about 30 minutes each with 2 senior attorneys, both of whom seemed to be going through the motions and not terribly engaged in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions
    • the questions were not difficult; rather, they questioned why i was looking in boston (i am from the midwest) and whether i would truly be willing to stay in the city post-graduation from law school.   Answer Question
