Anyone have a summer experience there? The reputation seems, well, not so great... but everyone I interviewed at seemed nice/happy.

What's really going on here?

How's the culture of the NY office? Anyone know anything about the NY office's litigation or corporate practice?

I think they still get a lot of flak for, among other things, this:
--LinkRemoved--

The attorney that wrote the email now has a blog and she's still pretty critical of PH:

My impression of them is mixed, based on my interactions with attorneys there (at recruiting and interviews, etc.) If you had a great feeling there, that is positive though. Don't let past negative history/gossip dictate where you go. On the other hand, maybe if you're looking at the SF office (where I believe Shinyung Oh worked), maybe it'd give some pause.

Also their offer rates this summer were really low, from what I remember. Betwenen 50-75% generally I think?

This is 2009, remember. That's not "really low" for 2009.

That's still low. There are a few firms that no-offered everyone, but there are lots of firms that offered close to everyone or above 90%.

How many will actually be working there in 16 or so months?
