I have been working at Seyfarth Shaw full-time (More than 10 years)
I think one of the most important aspects of any job is liking the people that you work with. The people here are like a family, the office is a friendly and caring environment, and the absence of true jerks is a big plus (it can be quite difficult to find a top law firm that does not have a sizeable contingent of jerks).
Further, the attorneys are top-notch, as are the clients, especially in the labor and employment group (which is most of the office).
Overall, its a great place to work, and an even better place to make a career.
Well, you are still an attorney, after all. Billable hour goals to meet, very heavy workloads at times (but usually it's manageable here, they don't try to work you to death).
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Seyfarth Shaw (Chicago, IL).
Pretty typical interview process. I was interviewed by one partner. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. Before meeting with the partner, I met with someone from Human Resources for about 5 minutes. She talked about the position, and what the firm was looking for.
