And I've heard stories about -- very -- difficult partners everywhere. Why is Cadwalader known to be so bad? I enjoyed my callback but am scared about its reputation.
Likewise. Currently debating a Cadwalader offer. Any chance we can get an honest discussion of pros/cons of working there?
Although layoffs certainly leave a bad taste, am I naive in thinking that the firm did indeed "right-size" and therefore would be able to weather a double-dip recession without layoffs?
There's probably no denying that Cadwalader uses a "churn and burn" business model. I'm probably not looking to make partner, so the more relevant question is what kind of exit opportunities would I have from Cadwalader?
