    I have been working at Dechert full-time

    Pros

    Dechert offers associates top litigation experiences on unique and interesting matters. The collegiality of the firm is terrific, and the compensation is top notch.

    Cons

    I really do not have any downsides to being at Dechert. There are times where I am extremely busy, of course, but that is both to be expected in any major firm and a good sign of progress.

    Advice to Management

    I think the firm should continue on its course -- seeking great candidates to be associates, offering top notch and hands on training experiences, and encouraging pro bono work for both value and training experience.

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Dechert (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview a couple of weeks after sending my resume. Interviewed with 11 people. No response from them after interviews in mid-June. Hey, I understand if I didn't get the job, but just tell me after I took time and money to fly to interviews. Unprofessional.
