Paul Weiss vs. Skadden (both NY)

Post by Anonymous User » Tue Sep 18, 2012 11:44 pm

Deciding between the two.

Interested in getting the best corp work I can, then leaving NY for a secondary market (though I'm sure I could stomach staying in NY if I had the right opportunities).

I know Skadden is a sweatshop, but I heard PW was as well. I loved the people I met at PW. The firm culture seems awesome. I liked the people I met at Skadden. Loved a few, ambivalent towards a few. I could see myself working with anyone I met, but just based on the culture, I would prefer PW to Skadden. But Skadden obviously has the best corp work, so their exit options seem to be the best.

Any insights?
