    I have been working at Macfarlanes full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The average quality of the lawyers is very high and there are very few people you wouldn't want to be stuck working with.

    Cons

    Most of the senior partners are very cold and insensitive because they are under a lot of pressure to perform themselves.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Macfarlanes (London, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Very relaxed interview style with a partner and senior associate. No technical questions were asked whatsoever. Interview was more of a conversation to determine team fit. Interviewers spent a lot of time selling Macfarlanes as a place to work.
