Featured Review

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.

"Legal Assistant"Jul 23, 2018

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Wachtell Lipton full-time

Pros

Working with the best and brightest in the industry, covering front page-WSJ transactions, provides insight into whether corporate law is a good career path for you

Cons

On call 24/7 (but easy to set boundaries, within reason), very fast-paced (also a pro)
