I worked at Bingham McCutchen full-time (More than a year)
Was a great place to work. Great benefits with ample vacation time and a good 401K. Employees were great to work with.
Firm sold to Morgan Lewis. Of the ~200 in the Lexington office, only a handful received permanent employment, the rest were let go, many with less than a week's notice.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bingham McCutchen (Costa Mesa, CA).
