Duration of Internship
How big was the office? Team Strength?
The Amarchand office is huge, about six floors. The team strength was about 8 people.
Timings? Number of working days per week
9 am to 8 pm; Monday to Friday
Accommodation: How? Where? Reviews?
Home in Delhi itself, but one can find accommodation in Delhi very easily.
First Impression? First day? Formalities?
Long introduction procedure by the HR, not allowed to carry personal laptops, the normal induction process took place.
Research on corporate propositions or orders.
Work Environment? People
The associates can be more friendly and try to motivate the interns.
I expected better from a tier 1 law firm.
One of the top firms in India- so its certificate holds a lot of value.
Things that could’ve been better
Attitude towards interns in general.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns
Break time essentially constitutes eating sandwiches on the stairs of the building, interns are very competitive so not much chilling.
Anything else you’d want to add
The food at the Amarchand & Magaldas canteen was good, however eating lunch in the basement area can be uncomfortable as you are surrounded by associates and partners.
If you do not have work from your team do not take work from litigation specially if you are a corporate intern. They will say it’s a small job, but it never is, and you end up getting scolded by your original team for not being available.
