As someone who summered at CWT and really liked it, I have to say this is a stupid way of looking at the situation.

Just curious, does CWT give each SA individual office or shared? What about for the first years?

Seriously. Fucking idiot. I recommend anything other than CWT, as it is a famously bad place to work.

Shared for junior associates up until around the middle of 1st year IIRC from interviews.

The management at KS seems to have improved over the past several years. I was completely uninterested in them prior to the OCI season but received a CB and really enjoyed my visit. I didn't get a "I secretly hate my job and I'm lying through my teeth right now" vibe from any of the attorneys I met with, unlike some other firms. That being said, I wouldn't pick KS unless you're certain you want to do litigation and you like torts.
