Review:

"An Exceptional Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Try to run team building events when you get new employees to ease them in instead of having them feel like an outsider.

Pros : Everyone here is the best at what they do and they love what they are doing. People here would work for less pay but the pay is equal to their qual.
Cons : It always is rough when a new person joins us here as they won't fit in with the crew right away.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
