I worked at Schulte Roth & Zabel full-time

Pros

Reputation of firm, particularly in the New York area, was helpful to my own reputation, and also to add to my resume. Firm resources were always available (day and night -- also a "con"). Interesting clients and interesting work.

Cons

It was a cut-throat environment, where few people seemed happy. When I smiled at a co-worker once, they asked if I was new to the firm. Litigation associates were really at the bottom of the totem pole, doing more grunt work than they would at other similarly-situated firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more than just lip service to a work-life balance.

    I have been working at Schulte Roth & Zabel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benfits are amazing in addition to the culture of the firm. You will be mentored by extremely knowledgable people. The best part of Schulte is that the employer cares about it's employees and that to me is essential. People who work here stay forever, or leave and come back.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say as I am fortunate enough to be a rehire at SRZ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!!!

    Pros

    great experience, above-market bonus, good people. always got best tech support and other office amenities

    life is hard for a corporate associate no matter where you are, but good to work at a firm where clients have deep pockets so they are not nickeling and diming their law firm
