I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time
Pro bono work is excellent, drawing on lots of different teams at the firm to bring lots of different experiences to any particular problem
The technology the firm uses is really bad. The laptop computers are slow and the connections through virtual private networks and other remote log-on are glitchy. The options for a firm cell phone are limited
Advice to Management
Try and do less of the Fortune 500-esque branding and corporate speak. It is really off putting and does not come across as professional and lawyerly
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hogan Lovells (New York, NY) in November 2016.
Absolutely awful. Phone interview setup for 4:45, she never called me and I had to reach out to her MYSELF. Finally spoke on the phone, the salary was extremely low for a big firm, and especially because I was coming from an even bigger firm. They were extremely rude, would not budge on the hours of 9:30 to 5:30 which does not work for someone commuting in from NJ. We have to be on the train and it by 7 to get parking. Was extremely dismissive and seemed like she didn't even want to be on the phone will me. Said she would let me know but doubt I will be hearing from her.
