Featured Review

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at Latham & Watkins

Pros

Clear direction, interesting work, lots of insight

Cons

Obviously your work won't feel incredibly high-impact at a large law firm as an intern, you might learn more at smaller orgs

Current Employee - Associate

I have been working at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people, great mentorship, lots of resources at your fingertips. Work/life balance taken more seriously than one would expect for big law.

Cons

Experiences may vary among locations.
