"Fantastic small firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 23, 2018

I think at the end of the day, my only advice is to hire more quality workers on and try and get the workload better split between each of us. As I've said in my cons, this is work before life and that only works for so long, for so many people.

Pros : My time spent at Howard & Howard has been and surely will continue to be an amazing experience. With a friendly work environment all the way from the bottom, up to our CEO Mark Davis. It's definitely a positive experience and a great place to start out at.
Cons : While I can personally handle it thanks to my lifestyle, I'll be the first to tell anyone that this is a work-before-life type of ordeal. Work will come before anything else and this can really burn out a lot of people.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
