I worked at McDermott Will & Emery (More than 3 years)
The Miami office has great, personal people who are highly intelligent and VERY good at what they do.
The only "cons" I can think of are the cons that are inherent in working for any major white shoe corporate firm. It involves very long hours, stress, and difficult clients. But, that being said, McDermott had the best work environment I could imagine because of its people.
I applied online. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (Dallas, TX) in August 2015.
Phone interview and 3 in person interviews at 3 different locations during a month long interview process. Very unorganized hiring managers who seem to make up interview rules as they go. After several interviews, I was basically offered the job after meeting with several upper management teams and attorneys. They performed background check and made salary offer. However, one of their tricky secretaries told her attorney negative things about me that were not true. Because of this one attorney and his secretary lies I was told that although I am perfect for job they cannot hire me.
