Review:

"A Busy Firm "

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The firm needs to strike a balance with the workload present here. At the time it was difficult to balance work and outside of work activities because of the demanding atmosphere that is present at this firm.

Pros : This is a large firm filled with many wonderful people. I've had the pleasure of working with great colleagues and behind us a great staff that challenged us every step of the way. The firm prides itself on delivering excellence and helped me advanced within my career greatly. It was an amazing experience working here.
Cons : This is a large firm with many great attorneys working here. At times it can become difficult managing your workload. Miscommunication leaves you lost. When things are in order work hours are long and exhausting. Much is expected of the team here to keep up with the tremendous workload.
