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 other source. I interviewed at Shearman & Sterling.
Thorough, met with numerous attorneys at a variety of levels. They conveyed that the work was demanding and rewarding, and that the demands would be significant. They made it clear that the experience would be extraordinary but required massive committment.
