STB culture?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 20, 2010 8:32 pm

I hear Simpson is one of the "nice" firms -- what does this mean? Any insight into STB's culture?

It means their PR department is doing a great job.

It doesn't mean you'll work less or less is expected but there's no shouting. A genteel environment I believe they call it. If you like that then it's a nice thing. Some like more of a fraternity environment.

Is STB the firm with the cookies they bake on the premises?

It means it's more "collegial" than say at Cravath where the culture is more formal and businesslike because it's a blueblood.

STB is fratty but not in the same almost-invasive way Skadden can be fratty. It's a "nice" firm but that can equal being passive-aggressive.

STB, like DPW, also seems to have a thing for the lookers among us. If you're not on LR, you're basically required to be both social and good-looking to receive an offer.

Why, thank you for thinking I'm so good looking. :lol:

It's my personal opinion that DPW oozes passive-aggressive while STB not so much.
