    I have been working at McCarthy & Holthus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I came from a terrible place where no matter how hard and smart you worked you weren't treated with regard. The office in Dallas is small and so there's a cohesiveness that's refreshing to me. There are less than 40 people in the office and everyone is committed to doing their best. It's wonderful to come in everyday and feel like you are working with a team- the entire office being the team. I'm really happy with this work environment.
    After having worked for a similar firm in Dallas which was truly like a sweatshop I'm happy to finally be in a team where everyone's participation is necessary to the success of the office. Your work is thus consequential. Everyone is warm towards you and we root for each other. We work hard and enjoy each others company.
    Management is invested in the success of their teammates. They don't have unnecessary power trips. No one gets testy..I can go on.

    Cons

    The office is part of the larger McCarthy Holthus LLP firm. But we have our own distinct culture here in Dallas. My impression is that the rest of McCarthy Holthus doesn't operate on our free love values that we hold dear to our hearts here in Dallas.

    Advice to Management

    Management in Dallas: continue fostering the greatest work environment ever.
    Management everywhere else: look at how things are done here. We succeed because we love being at work everyday, so we put in our best.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at McCarthy & Holthus (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Called about a week later to set up an interview. Interview was informal and more of a conversation to feel eachother out and see what each side had to offer. Very few direct questions and not as tense or forward as interviews with other firms. Job offer came the next day contingent upon meeting the partners in San Diego.

    Interview Questions

    • What are you hoping to get out of working here? They didn't really want to ask the "where do you see yourself in five years?" question.   Answer Question
