This was by far the worst of any of my callbacks. I don't understand the "great culture" this firm brags about -- I certainly didn't encounter it on my interview. The associates were nice/really awkward/nerdy and the hiring partner was a total dick.

Also got the impression that the associates were not at all happy with the work they were doing. Basically the corporate clients determine the litigation work the firms takes on, and there was very little flexibility in choosing where you assigned. I just expected a lot more.

agree with above. And, they went out of their way to say that they will let everyone know within a week either with a no or maybe. I had to call 2-3 weeks later because of deadlines and they were like, oh yeah, ding.
But guys, they are #1 in the A-List!

Man. You guys had a much different CB experience than I did. Also, I thought Lit was HHR's core practice -- where can I dig up info on whether they take on independent litigation or primarily support the corporate groups?

I'm not sure how you can find this out online. I got my information directly from an associate at the firm. I asked him/her if there was anything they wish they had known about the firm when they were in my position, and that's what he/she said. Basically the firm has a few big clients and the firm handles the transactional and litigation work for those clients.

I really don't understand where the "happy" reputation came from because I did not get that at all.

I had an awesome experience, everyone was hilarious and fun to talk to, and people seemed happy with their work relative to every other firm I visited. They were witty and down to earth. Most people in law school do not share these qualities, so it isn't surprising that some people don't think its a good fit.

If you had such a terrible callback and you had so many other offers on the table, why were you even waiting to get a response? Sounds like ya grapes are sour.
