I have been working at Shearman & Sterling full-time (More than a year)
Relatively humane for biglaw; high degree of integrity
Biglaw is biglaw, if it's not for you it's a bad fit
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Shearman & Sterling.
My resume was submitted by a staffing agency. Nice people but oddly instead of a phone screen first they wanted an in person interview right away. The job description overly exaggerated their need for digital marketing expertise which my resume and education reflected but what they really needed for this role was a Sharepoint site expert above anything else. I would recommend to them using the job description to better communicate the non-negotiable skills needed and doing phone screens to benefit and respect the time of both interviewees and interviewers.
