I worked at LECG full-time (More than a year)
Built lifelong camaraderie with my analyst class. Learnt a great deal of technical skills.
Horrible hours, terrible bosses - lots of ill tempered higher ups. Academic types who are unable to do proper project management. Mid-level managers were calm level headed and technically sound professionals who kept the boat afloat.
Advice to Management
You should have stayed a private company!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at LECG (San Diego, CA) in July 2010.
I got the interview via a referral from someone who had worked at a different branch of the company. HR called me the same or next day to schedule the interview. Met with about 3 of 4 different people: CPA lead and some analysts. Asked me behavioral questions mostly, such as describe yourself using adjectives, how do you keep organized, etc. At the end, there was a tax return income statement in which you had provide bullet points of your thoughts of the document, and also some general research conceptual questions. Everyone was very nice, cordial, and amiable.
