Is it true that most top law firms will generally not consider CSK associates when hiring?

Not true. I actually have been hired because I’ve worked at CSK. If you can make it a year st CSK & not end up in a hospital, anyone will take you.

I have had the same experience - the fact I was at CSK meant I had more exposure and experience than someone with a year or two more of “time in” - but only join them if your desperate. There is no WLB lol

Love how all CSK’s LinkedIn and other job postings are always for “Litigation Associate”. Who are they trying to fool? It’s not like people outside of Florida would have even heard of them, and those of us from or at least working here any significant period of time know what they really do — ID — and that they’re a sweatshop full of mostly nasty people. Also love the “Florida’s largest law firm” advertisement they always do in postings as if that’s either true and/or prestigious in any way. Also LOL that this got pinned, well deserved.

I generally share your sentiment and don’t have great things to say about the place but they are the largest law firm in Florida and ID is litigation…

I think it’s depended. Top law firms will always look at grades and the like. I think it’s a lot harder to jump from CSK to a large firm that’s not insurance defense. If you want to get paid more and go to a larger firm that has institutional clients then usually those firms will not consider CSK associates, but there’s always exceptions.

That’s not true. I can work at nearly any firm bc of my experience. We work hard and people know csk peeps aren’t lazy. Well, for the most part. I speak only for those who litigate.

Oh you may be right. I misread the post. My bad.
