    I have been working at Morrison & Foerster full-time (More than a year)


    It is refreshing to go to work and be surrounded by intelligent people who collectively care about doing a good job for the clients and not working on their own agendas.
    It is a positive place to work with plenty of resources and training.
    Extremely helpful co-workers.
    The Benefits are great!


    None - unless they could fly me into work on a private helicopter to avoid the commute.

    Junior Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morrison & Foerster (New York, NY) in January 2017.


    15 mins interview. one question from interviewer then he start to introduce the firm. I follow up with question on my own. Overall process is uncomfortable and the interviewer is an engaging individuals with a clear enthusiasm for the team that they work in. But he seems new to hiring process and not happy in doing interview. The interview is very much formatted and he clearly show he loses interest in middle way.
