Almost afraid to ask after the heavy layoffs I read about last year, but any thoughts on Cadwalader NYC’s funds group?

I’ve never met anyone from cad that wasn’t miserable.

plenty of better firms hiring for funds.

simpson, K&E, debevoise, paul weiss, pick your poison. mofo ny is also hiring for funds although not a funds firm.

Awful firm but will pay market so if you’re at a bad place like midsize or Jones Day then go for it

Do not go there lol

I’ve only heard horrible things about Cadwalader. From having a toxic culture to treating associates poorly to not shying away from cuts/stealth layoffs when even a little bit convenient ... I would not go there unless your options were Cad vs. unemployment

Lol the comments in here resonate with what I’ve seen from Cadwalader associates I used to know. I remember them being one of my callbacks at OCI and even though I had my favorite interview ever with a partner there, the writing was on the wall. They were late in giving me an offer but never dinged. Several weeks after I had easily accepted my first choice they called me to see if I was still “interested” (they wanted to know before they gave me an offer because I think recruiting metrics are tied to offer-acceptance percentage). I told them sorry I accepted another offer and the recruiting department person let out an exhaustive “ugh”. Seems like they were having a rough time filling their summer class...

That being said, if you don’t have other market options, go for a year and then lateral. Any other big law firm would immediately understand why you’d want to leave after a year and they’ll review you as someone with Cadwalader credentials.
