Um... they have a lot of offices, and seem to have expanded by merging with other firms instead of just opening a new shop. Although that is not very unusual. Also, the Phoenix office at least seems to have retained some of it's independance/original firm culture.

I dunno, haven't heard much else.

I have heard good remarks about overall QOL. Like was mentioned, they have quite a few offices. I have had interactions with a couple of the offices and came away with overall good vibes.

Don't know much but would also be interested in info anybody else might have.

Does anyone who interviewed with Perkins Coie know how fast they give out callbacks/rejections after the initial OCI interview? Thanks.

Was this at PLIP, or OCI? When(ish) was it? Which office?

I think all of those factors would be relevant.

Perkins has been voted in the Top 100 places to work in America for 8 years running, now... and honored by several publications for being very accommodating for women with children and such. Supposedly they have a part-time partnership track and partners that work part-time. I can't even imagine how that could work out in a big firm, but it's what I hear.

Has anyone heard from Perkins Coie's San Francisco office?
I had callback almost two weeks ago, but no news yet. I heard from the grapevine they started sending out rejections though. Any info would be appreciated!

I've heard that their Chicago office isn't too well integrated with the rest of the firm (San Fran). Not sure how this applies to their other offices, though.
