"Small and Friendly, but Maybe Limits Potential"

Current Employee - Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Make it so that people have a better time while working here by providing them more useful feedback and making sure the hardest workers get the best rewards - this will also help people later in their careers as well, and increase their effort and commitment in the present.

Pros : The firm is relatively small, which most people tend to view positively - it makes for a pleasant and fairly relaxed atmosphere. Everyone seems to be on the same page, and the office runs efficiently. The mentoring program is great for new graduates.
Cons : Despite the pros of the mentoring program, it sometimes does not seem like there is a lot of room for advancement from here to other, larger firms. Some formal and informal feedback that superiors provide is simply not very helpful. Some people don't seem to carry their own weight.
