"Very Flexible Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I would like to see management implement small groups that will take care of worker reviews on a more regular basis so that employees know where they stand in the firm.

Pros : I found the pay to be excellent. I also thought that there was great flexibility in terms of allowing how each individual deals with their client. Everyone was very friendly as well.
Cons : This is a big law firm and being a big law firm there it can be quite arduous to figure out where you stand in the firm when compared to everyone else. I found this is be a somewhat small flaw in the grand scheme of things though.
