Interview

Memorable as one of my worst interview experiences for a legal role. One of the interviews (senior attorney) was extremely rude and unprofessional. The other interviewer, more junior attorney, was much nicer and I could tell she was embarrassed by her colleague.

A recruiter scheduled a phone screen with me and then never called. I followed up and still never heard back. Large companies like this should have the bandwidth to follow up with applicants.

Interview

the code challenge that was asked of us was, in my opinion, way harder than it should have been for an entry level job. although i did solve the challenge, my code wasn't "fast enough" so be considered passing. i think thats fine, but then don't call this entry level if you gonna expect perfect code with perfect structure

Sent me a code problem and it was an algorithm, talking about an escape room numbers and basically thinking through their permutations and what would work and what wouldn't. A graph data structure would have been useful in this scenario, it was also timed
