I understand why, but I think people are going to be reluctant to talk about this, even anon on a forum. It's one thing to say a judge works his/her clerks hard - I think judges could take a perverse pride in that. But calling a judge an asshole is just tougher to do. It's the kind of conversation that would work better over PM, except everyone's anon about where they work/where they're applying, that kind of thing.
(But people, feel free to prove me wrong and name names here!)
So, I am reluctant to name names (even anonymously), but there is an SDNY judge who is very well known by people at NY law schools to be a terrible person to work for (both in terms of hours and not being very nice). If you ask around, you should be able to find out who she is.
