I don't know any of this for sure, but I would think Quinn has a strong offer rate across all offices and very little trouble with recession layoffs. There are reasons to be wary of Quinn, but none of them are in this vein. They print money over there.

Lots of discussion of what their dress code means for guys on CBs but what about for ladies? I have a CB at the NY office next week and don't know what to wear, the email confirming my interview reiterated their no dress code policy so I feel like I shouldn't wear a full on suit but suit --> insta business casual is harder to pull off as a girl when you have no tie to take off. Suggestions?

I have a friend who I just asked about this, just got done with a Quinn dinner (and I really loved everyone), hoping for a response and want to start thinking about clothes. Friend did their pre-OCI hiring thing successfully.

She wore black pants with a bright belt, bright silk shirt, black blazer that was obviously a different fabric than the pants to make it clear that it wasn't a suit. She also felt free to take the blazer on and off as temperature required, rather than stuffily keeping it on all day even though the interview might be a bazillion degrees.

My plan if I get a response is to wear a conservative dress, the kind I usually wear to networking cocktails, with a different colored blazer.

I'm a woman and wore a light colored suit (khaki, but light gray would work too) with a cream top and a "statement" necklace. I got an offer. I felt it conveyed the right combination of respect for the opportunity/firm/my interviewers without telegraphing that I didn't realize that the firm was "casual." No one will ever hold it against you for being slightly overdressed.

I interviewed with the DC office and the recruiting manager made it clear that the dress was business casual and not a suit. I did my interview in slacks and a dress shirt; I received an offer that day. Maybe I'm just an odd person when it comes to attention to detail, but if the instructions say business casual then you should listen. I think it's also safe to ask the recruiting manager of that office how you should dress for the interview.

Same, but for SF. Felt extremely overdressed even like that
