Employee Reviews

  • “We have 'quiet' times on Fridays, early shutdowns before three-day weekends, and half days every Friday during the summer. Also, unused PTO is rolled over to the next year.”

  • “Schellman’s benefits have increasingly improved over time. I love that we get two weeks off at year-end holiday, one week of for July 4 week, three to four weeks based on tenure PTO, plus many federal holidays. Schellman is a leader in time off quality of life.”

  • “Despite being ‘very on’ and sometimes working long weekday hours, even as a partner, I am almost never e-mailed or called during the weekend.”

  • “Work/life balance is excellent, especially as it compares to other firms in our industry. On the downside, sometimes expectations are unclear when events are considered optional.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “We’re looking for game changers. Experienced hires have two to three rounds of interviews, and a decision is made quickly. Entry-level associates come in as a cohort and have a similar interview experience, except that the first interview is often proxied through the university.”

  • “Our interview process can move quite quickly when we have a need—this is great for a job seeker, as there isn’t a lot of getting jerked around.”

  • “We are very communicative throughout the process.”

  • “The company is seeking competent, loyal, and personable professionals. It cares about innovative thought but really cares about recruits accepting and thriving in the company’s culture, which is diverse, hardworking, and self-motivating. The company tends to recruit candidates who are not happy with their big-firm experience or from the top echelon of second-tier schools.”
