Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. Continue to be transparent.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2017.
Original interview was great! No stupid "hypothetical" questions, etc.; to the point, and they didn't spend the entire time discussing their greatness. Second interview was pretty intense and intimidating considering it was myself against 2 partners, 1 associate, 1 of counsel, a paralegal supervisor, and another paralegal. 3 were in-person, 1 video conference, 2 over the phone. Then came the waiting game. It was an unnecessarily long, anxious, longer than a week before I received the offer. In all, the entire process took more than a month, and after receiving all the necessary clearances, sharing in major excitement, making childcare arrangements, buying an entire new wardrobe, celebrating a new career move, they waited until 5:00 pm on a Friday to inform me that they have rescinded my offer (without any explanation). My kids are devastated and confused. I, myself, will go on to do better things, and would rather not work for such an indecisive, inconsiderate firm anyway.
There was not a negotiation phase. We went through a recruiter and she had repeatedly confirmed my salary requirements, relaying that should they make an offer they wanted to ensure that I promptly accepted.
