    Nice people but not great pay

    Jan 20, 2022 - Legal Administrative Assistant in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyone that I worked with at Shearman & Sterling was very nice and professional. I learned a lot in my position. They had a monthly wine & cheese event that was really nice. You'd get to mingle with the workers from the other floors.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't so great for the San Francisco office.

    Pros

    Pay was great. The people there are quite capable. The attorneys really know what they're doing and they sometimes have time to help.

    Cons

    The hours are long. I was looking at 9:30-9 on a consistent basis, and often til 12 or 2. Expect 12 hour days to be a given. Weekends, kiss goodbye.

    Pros

    Very competitive pay. Benefits are standard

    Cons

    A true sweatshop. There is no work life balance. You can't count on management to support you. If it can save their skin, they will sacrifice you. Truly horrible place to work. Stay away!

    Pros

    -Big Firm -Good reputation -Great location right next to the subway -Friendly people

    Cons

    -Lack of transparency. I was hired as a temporary employee and given a lot of responsibilities. I was under the impression from what they told me and how they acted that the role would most likely become permanent. However, I was replaced and let go the day before a big holiday. -I tried to email for references and didn't hear back from supervisors that I worked closely with for months and considered on very good terms with -Very low pay

Diversity and Inclusion
Last week, to honor Juneteenth, our Inclusion Network, BE SEEN (Black Employees at Shearman for Empowerment and Networking) welcomed Jeffrey A. Fletcher, the owner and collector of the Ruby and Calvin Fletcher African American History Museum (African American Collections), to share insights into the museum’s collection, “Images of America, Challenges of the Badge.” As a benefactor of the Ruby and Calvin Fletcher Museum, this project is close to the hearts of our Shearman & Sterling family. Mr. Fletcher provided an opportunity to view a powerful visual display and hear stories of what motivated the trailblazers who forged the way for equality and freedom for African Americans. The artifacts that Mr. Fletcher shared reflect decades of turbulent times for African Americans in the United States during the period of slavery and the Civil Rights movement.
