Cadwalader DC

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:47 am

I've heard Cadwalader described as a "sweatshop." I assume this would apply to the NYC office. Does it also apply to the significantly smaller DC office? Anyone have any info about them?

The DC office is very small, very concentrated on certain non-NYC-centric practice groups, and is reputed to have a completely different culture than the NYC office. Their billable hour requirement is also very reasonable - 1900 minimum.

Got an e-mail from them last week (3 weeks after my callback) saying I was still under consideration. Will probably take another offer in the meantime.
