    I worked at Cooley full-time

    Pros

    Top Pay; solid foundation; on a trajectory to become an elite firm across practice groups

    Cons

    it's big law... Elite and balanced don't always go together; a bit of an identity crisis for early stage group and hourly rates

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cooley (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was pleasant and professional. I was asked thorough but standard questions like "describe your best qualities," or "how would you handle this situation...". No crazy questions or anything out of the box.
