Gibson Dunn was ranked tenth out of 112 law firms in the American Lawyer’s 2013 Summer Associates Survey. In the rankings by city, the Firm ranked No. 1 in Dallas, Orange County, Palo Alto and San Francisco and No. 5 in Washington, D.C. The survey was based on nine job satisfaction questions, including “interest level of the work, how much of it was "real," training and guidance, interactions with partners and full-time associates, how well the firm communicated its goals, how accurately the firm portrayed itself in interviews, how it rated overall as a place to work, and the respondents’ inclination to accept a job if one were offered.” The survey was featured in the October 2013 issue.
