    I have been working at Jones Day full-time

    Pros

    The firm gets great work and has a collaborative, noncompetitive culture, which is driven by a governance model that is different from the typical law firm model. It's a firm of good people and great opportunities.

    Cons

    This isn't a downside for me, but depending on the matter, you can work long hours at Jones Day. For me it has meant great experience and a great opportunity to develop my professional profile, but if you want to make sure you have weekends and evenings off, it's probably not the place for you.

    Project Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Jones Day (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Met with the manager of project assistants/paralegals, current project assistant, staff attorney, and HR manager. Everyone was really nice but my interview took two days and a total of about 4.5 hours and no one ever contacted me again. Although they requested my availability for the following week to meet with attorneys, I never heard back. I understand if I did not get the job but I believe it is rather unprofessional to keep someone in the interview process for 3 weeks and never contact them again, regardless if you are going to offer them employment or not. Luckily I was hired by another firm the following week.
