I worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP full-time (More than a year)
SOM is what you make it to be. There are amazing and brilliant minds here. You will learn quite a bit in a short time. If you are not driven, detail oriented, and direct, this is not the place for you. Gorgeous offices and they truly take great care of their employees with compensation.
The hours can be exhausting, but that is the industry we work in. The projects are large and sometimes there can be a disconnect between departments.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (New York, NY).
I was contacted by a recruiter. The process started with a brief phone call with the recruiter describing the position. Next was an interview with a senior designer and a technical director in the office. The interview was casual, looking through my work samples and talking about the direction of the firm. I was contacted 3 days later with an offer.
