in terms of financial stability/no-offer rates/etc.
So far people have said avoid Paul Hastings corporate group.
I've had various partners opine that OMM is having financial issues.
There seems to be chatter that Norton no offers people.
people also mentioned pillsbury/kirkland/reed smith to avoid for the matter of assholes, but would those still be safe/prudent to work for in the sense of a career choice?
Yeah Kirkland for sure (though you're going to work your ass off). Can't speak to Pillsbury or Reed Smith. I seem to recall that people hate Pillsbury's bonus policy and their slow playing $180k.
Definitely avoid PH if you can for an abundance of reasons. I have also heard the OMM rumors re their financials, but don't know that it has affected offer rates/job security (yet). Reed Smith has a morale problem, and both of my friends there are actively looking to get out. Smokey is right about Pillsbury; they're cheap. Norton, like Reed Smith and Pillsbury, is kind of TTT.
Can you elaborate on the reasons to avoid PH?
Look back through this thread. We've discussed.
