Review:

"Great Salary"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

I hope that management realizes how much it means to employees when they take the time out to connect on a personal level with them. Small things like that can make a big difference in the satisfaction of people working in the firm.

Pros : I found the salary and benefits here to be top of the market. Health insurance is affordable and the perks are great.
Cons : Management seems to be disconnected from associates and support staff. They don't do much to connect with us and aren't very accessible.
