My experience at Wilson Sonsini was positive.

Associate (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Wilson Sonsini

ProsI came to Wilson Sonsini because of the the type of work (general corporate and venture capital), the subject matter (emerging growth and IT), the clients (from entrepreneurs to public companies), and the early responsibility. In general, the firm did not disappoint in any of these aspects.

ConsAlthough the work and clients are great, I found that it was quite difficult getting exposure to certain work outside your office location. This proves to be important for those not working in Palo Alto. Additionally, when things got tight, I found that sometimes certain groups would begin to hoard hours and close ranks on deals that they were working.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
