Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP Reviews

"Competitive in nature"

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

There is a lot of work to do and lots of deadlines to achieve. If you can cope with the fast paced and competitive environment I would say that you should join this firm as you can learn a lot of new things.

Pros : The work environment is fast paced and the environment is competitive. I would characterize this firm as competitive and interesting. The work environment is good, interesting cases, attorneys are bright and atmosphere is friendly. I learned a lot of new things while working as an attorney here. The range of work and clients that I was exposed to was stimulating and interesting.
Cons : Remuneration is average or sometimes below average. The biggest challenge is to achieve a work/life balance as the workload is cyclical in nature when multiple engagements are occurring at the same time.

"An Average Big Firm"

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

Management needs to spend more time understanding the people they're managing and less time just breezing along as part of a huge machine that they think will go on no matter what they do.

Pros : There are lots of highly talented people in the firm and lots of interesting work. I always found something that grabbed my attention.
Cons : Like with many firms this size, there are a bunch of downsides. Advancement is difficult. Work load is incredibly heavy. Management often makes huge mistakes with no oversight.
