I have been working at Epstein Becker & Green full-time (More than 10 years)
If you are an attorney who wants to practice Health law or Labor and Employment law this is the Firm you want to be at. The Firm has an entrepreneurial culture and attorneys are given interesting projects and a significant amount of client interaction very early in their career. Everybody (attorneys and staff) are genuinely nice people and that is one of many reasons why I have stayed at the Firm for 20 years.
The Washington, DC office is located in a quiet, more residential area, and I know that some would prefer a location that is closer to more restaurants and activities in the heart of the city. However, the DC office did just under go a beautiful office renovation and employees now have access to a gym on the premises.
Advice to Management

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Epstein Becker & Green (New York, NY).
I was interviewed by two people. During my first interview, the interviewer had a really bad attitude. She didn't ask many questions. She went through my work experience one by one, inquiring which positions were full time and which were part time. When she got half way, she stopped and said to "I think this is going to be a difficult position for you". Then she looked at me and said, "Didn't they say you were previously a receptionist? Where is that on your resume?" I was really nice about it and directed her to where it was written but she was not nice at all. Even if I got the job, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't enjoy working there. Afterwards I spoke with someone who was much more friendly. I was given a typing test and was told to recreate a document. The tests were not hard at all. It's basic legal spelling and how well can you navigate Microsoft Word.
