I know how the Cravath assignment system works, it's 18 month rotations. I see equal amounts of good and bad from that so it's not really weighing onto either side in my decision. What I'm unsure about is if it's really more hours than other firms and their treatment of women. Any thoughts on that?
Cravath hosted a women-only 1L reception at my school last year. It was horrifying -- by the end, not only did I never want to work at Cravath, I was ready to get out of law altogether. PM me if you want more details, but from the conversations I had with women lawyers, I can say that it does NOT seem like a female-friendly place to work.
