I worked at Foley & Lardner (More than 10 years)
The Firm has smart and dedicated lawyers and staff. Professional development is above average.
Management and its decision making is insular and can be slow to make big changes that might upset status quo. It is a conservative process.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Foley & Lardner (Madison, WI).
In hindsight, not forthcoming in the least bit about the intensity of the role nor very informative on the volume of work received on a daily basis. Huge omissions of information about training, on-boarding and process to best inform potential candidates about the true and honest demands of this role. Multiple rounds and follow ups that were so short-sighted in assisting making an informed decision about taking the role or not. I had I been informed honestly of this IP Assistant role of which I discovered within weeks of starting, I would have never pursued it. After 16 years in legal, I know garbage when I smell it. 5 interviews total that began with a phone screen.
Nothing seemed to be negotiable...TELLING RIGHT THERE.
