    I worked at Wilson Sonsini full-time (Less than a year)


    Everyone seems pretty happy to work there, so there's (mostly) positive energy in the office. An ergonomic specialist will give you basically anything you need to be comfortable at your desk. There's a discounted cafeteria with healthy options. Occasionally the firm will put on fun events like a mid-day luau or snack break. Firm is a stable organization that's reluctant to let people go, so if you get a job there it is very secure.


    Not innovative on technology (you will likely be frustrated by their software/interfaces if you've come from a tech savvy company). Pay is not that competitive compared to other companies in the Valley.

    Advice to Management

    I loved all those fun mid-day snack breaks so more of those would be good. Improve the IT department so that it's more innovative/up on current technology. The firm's website could be updated so that it's cleaner and more user-friendly.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wilson Sonsini (Palo Alto, CA).


    I met with five attorneys for about 30 minutes each. It was a fairly typical callback process and was asked expected questions. Be prepared to talk about why you want to work for Wilson and silicon valley.
