    The work wasn't distributed evenly.

    Advice to Management

    Some secretaries sit around doing nothing while others are extremely busy. Make sure everyone is helping each other especially when meeting deadlines.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allen & Overy.

    Interview

    A lot of scenario-based questions and the interview is awfully long. For example, tell me about a time when you hold a minority viewpoint in a group. A very thorough interview. The case study was relatively easier for me. The interviewer was very personable and guided through the case. Learned a lot from the case interview.
