    I worked at Sullivan & Cromwell as a contractor (more than 3 years)


    The people there are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I have worked there as a paralegal and also continued to work there when I passed the bar and became admitted. I still have good friends that currently work there.


    There were only a few instances where I would come across a bad apple that would create a toxic atmosphere for those of us that came to work. However, that would be quickly remedied by the leadership there which wanted to a positive atmosphere which would allow people to prosper and enjoy their experience working there.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and sent my resume, transcript, and cover letter. They emailed me asking for a phone interview which was straightforward and as pleasant as any interview could be. Then went into the final round interview at the New York office where I did a quick translation and then met with an HR employee, a senior legal assistant, and the manager of the practice group I was interviewing for - all of whom were extremely welcoming and easy to talk to.
