Featured Review

Current Employee - Litigation Paralegal

I have been working at Cravath Swaine full-time for less than a year

Pros

Nothing compares to the kind of experience one is to get at a firm like this. While most days require overtime, there are absolutely no regrets as there is something new one is likely to learn every... day! The firm allows everyone, regardless of their seniority level in the team, to really interact with the case and everyone on the team is always willing to answer any and every question related to the job.

Cons

There are no cons in my opinion!
