"Brilliant colleagues, top-of-the-line work, and a supportive workplace culture make Skadden a great place to work"

- Reviewed on October 06, 2016

Skadden is a fantastic place to begin a legal career. Of course it would be a great place to finish one's career as well, but Skadden also affords young associates great opportunities to pursue government or in-house positions down the line. Partners and senior associates do what they can to help you succeed. The firm is busy, but it provides you with the resources needed to do your job well.

Pros : Skadden is a uniquely positioned firm with a plethora of industry-leading practices. Clients come to Skadden for their most important matters when the firm's unique expertise can be a difference-maker. The firm attracts top students, but also looks for those who will fit into the firm's culture.
Cons : Like all large law firms, hours can be tough at times. This is usually based on client demands, rather than difficult partners. This downside seems like the nature of the work though, rather than being unique to Skadden.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
Job type : Full time

"A Busy Productive Firm"

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Find a balance with work and life. There are many responsibilities expected from you when you work at this firm, while it can feel rewarding, it becomes exhausting. Keep track of your superiors if you are in need of questions being answered."

Pros : A great work environment that makes you feel productive. The work here is demanding, but rewarding. The staff is great and goes out of their way to work around your needs. There is room for growth and overall I had a great time working here.
Cons : Hours here are long and tedious. With so much work expected from you, at times it can become difficult to get responses from superiors.
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
