I have been working at Fragomen Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)
My experience at Fragomen has been great. There is real sense of teamwork. The attorneys and staff really work together rather than competing with one another. The partners are also really great supervisors. They are supportive and seek out opportunities for young associates. They also encourage pro bono. It really is a wonderful place to work.
The hours can be long, especially during cap season, but that's to be expected.
Advice to Management
We need to hire more paralegals more quickly.
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen Worldwide (New York, NY) in December 2016.
It was a pretty straight forward process and similar to most described here. Filled out an online application and a recruiter contacted me to do a short phone interview where they asked very standard questions and gave some info about the position. She said that she would follow up if they wanted to bring me in for an interview which she did a few days later.
For the first interview I met with 4 different people for about 20/30 minutes each, which was a bit intimidating but everyone was very friendly and it was a good opportunity to learn more about the job and also puts a little less pressure on each individual interview since you meet with many different people. A few days later the recruiter contacted last again and set up second round interviews where it was the same process but with partners of the firm and this time 3 instead of 4.
All in all a somewhat lengthy process but not too bad. Just have to do your homework before.
Did not negotiate. They offered the salary that I had initially requested during the phone interview.
