"True Thoughts"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Promotion is also extremely competitive and always takes way longer than you hope or imagine it would. Stick it out, and you'll eventually get it in many cases, but it might take serious tenacity and time.

Pros : Phelps Dunbar LLP is the best firm and hopefully the last firm I will ever work for.
Cons : Salary ranges are on the low end of the spectrum. The work is demanding and considers necessary trade-offs with other priorities.
