    I worked at Patton Boggs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    interesting work, range of personalities, range of clients. And general support for public policy work.

    Cons

    difficult as mid level to move up and partners often reluctant to share attribution; got harder to do public policy work within major law firm

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Patton Boggs (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The process was a standard law firm interview process: initial interview on grounds with a partner, then a call to fly out to the office for a day of interviews followed by lunch. There were five interviews, mostly with partners. The initial interviewing partner from the on campus interview is your 'guide' for the day. The lunch is attended by both partners and associates. Of course it is still an interview as well, but there was more of a relaxed and casual feel about it, as if they were trying to get more of a sense of you as a person. Unlike other firms I'd interviewed with, people at this firm seemed to enjoy each other's company.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interviewers asked me detailed questions about an undergraduate neuroscience project I'd worked on. It was a very complex project that didn't have any direct relationship to the role I was interviewing for, so I wasn't expecting to have to explain the inner workings of the hippo-campus.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was right at the onset of the recession- no negotiation.
