    I worked at Skadden Arps full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and competitive salary range

    Cons

    Long working hours and lack of work life balance. Lack of chance of growth or promotion. Raise and bonus are equally distributed but not based on performance.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Skadden Arps.

    Interview

    Most disorganized interview I've ever had, interviewers were very terse and standoffish, showed up 15 min late, not too many questions asked, mostly listened to them rant on about how great the company is for hours and then suggested they are looking at other people at the end - what I felt then was a complete waste of my time. Ended up getting an offer but declining then I just got an email today after three months stating that they are not extending an offer - just another sign of their lack of organization.
