2011 SA offers

Postby trickydicky » Fri Jul 29, 2011 5:01 pm

Admins,

Can we post a sticky for people to report summer associate hiring. I know that two days ago Latham offered everyone in its NY office.

I don't think a sticky is necessary (yet), but folks are welcome to post here (anon or otherwise) if they know a particular office has made offers.

Ropes apparently gave offers a few weeks ago. Latham has given out offers (not 100% firmwide, however). Gibson Dunn NY has made offers as well.

Interesting. Reminds me of the person on here who was summering with them and was worried about their rep of no-offering because of slipped grades. His/hers had fallen precipitously, but i guess they were okay.

I also heard summers were worked till 10 pm and on weekends regularly. Can anyone confirm the 58/60 and explain what happened to the other two?

This is an exaggeration, or at least is not fully representative. It really depended on what you got staffed on. There were two massive, short-timeframe financing/cap markets deals where the summers were regularly in late (I think one summer pulled an all-nighter) and on weekends. But the majority of summers didn't have that sort of workload. I worked until 10 or 11 maybe 5-6 times, billed 10 hours one weekend and 5 hours another weekend, but otherwise was out of the office at a normal time (i.e., not later than 7ish). My office mate worked similar hours. I would say our workload was pretty average.

I can confirm that there was one person who got no-offered. It's possible there was another, but I haven't heard anything about it. The kid who didn't get an offer was kind of weird/awkward, but as far as I know, didn't do anything outrageous. I have no idea what his work product was like though.

Fun fact: I did not work at Debevoise, but the the only summer I know at my firm who worked well past midnight was involved on a deal Debevoise was involved with. It is thus fair to say that not only does Debevoise work its summers hard, but they work OTHER firm's summers hard too.
