You will receive excellent training as a young associate, and if you do good work, you will be given substantial responsibility early on.
Long hours; opacity regarding management-level decisions.
Advice to Management
Don't skimp on the fringe benefits for associates and staff.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sullivan & Cromwell.
I applied through my university's career website. I was contacted for a phone interview about a week or so later. The interview wasn't too hard, and they were very nice. They said they would let me know in 1-2 weeks if there would be an in person interview, but they never got back to me.
