I have been working at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg full-time
Great place when you want to start on your career. People are great too.
Too big a divide between staff and Lawyers. Not enough openness.
Advice to Management
Stop with the on a need to know basis. Stop treating staff like second class citizens.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg (Montreal, QC (Canada)).
Very pleasant process in a relaxing environment (considering it's a job interview at a top-tier firm!). First interview was one-on-one (comfy chairs, cookies), with mostly personality questions. Second interview was with two senior partners and more difficult. Third interview was another one-on-one, but this time I felt like the interviewer, while they were enticing me to join.
