Review:

"Busy Firm to Work For"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

Sometimes I felt that there needed to be a little more of a balance between home and work life. I don't mind working hard for the firm, but I don't feel I need to sacrifice my family for it.

Pros : The work here is always steady and the pay is top notch. I love the people that I get to work with. Everyone is so agreeable.
Cons : There is a lot of work to do and you will stay busy. This is not a place for anyone who is afraid to work to be.
