San Francisco 

Firm Culture:  Fear-ruled, deceptive, secretive,stiff, smug, delusionally "superior", amateur-managed snakepit. Publicly pretends to care about pro bono (e.g., by bullying local charitable organizations into putting firm partners on their boards) while privately telling associates not to do any if they value their careers.
Work & Hours: Desperately wants the big, high-profile cases and clients but, with the exception of the antitrust group, doesn't have the firepower to get them.
Salary & Benefits:  Like any big firm.
The Interview process:  Deceptive. Numerous associates feel they were sold a bill of goods.
Overall Impression:  The firm is run by a bunch of coddled, self-satisfied, inexperienced liars. Run, don't walk.
