    I have been working at Ropes & Gray full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Genuinely good people, occasionally high stress/long hours - but thats to be expected.

    Cons

    Your experience really depends on your teams and it seems like there are some well known problems that just never get fixed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ropes & Gray (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    One HR woman contacted me for a phone interview three weeks after I submitted the application. I found a quiet conference room at my office 5 mins before the scheduled time. Turns out she was 30 mins late. The interview went pretty well, very straightforward, no unexpected questions. At the end of the interview, she guaranteed that she would inform me the result by the end of the week. Now two weeks past, still nothing from her. Emailed her last week and heard nothing back. Extremely unprofessional. What was worse is my last temporary job supervisor overheard my phone interview, (because HR called me 30 mins later after I went back to my desk. I couldn’t find a private room so I had to rush to lobby to answer the phone call), I got fired the same day. This firm really grossed me.
