Review:

"A Great Work Environment"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 13, 2017

There needs to be more vacation time to balance out the long hours.

Pros : There is a good sense of professionalism present here at this firm. The team challenges every employee to put forth effort every day. This leads to a workload that is distributed evenly throughout this large firm. Opportunities for advancement are plentiful and office spaces are large.
Cons : The work hours are long. It's hard to balance work and life, but this is common of larger firms. This doesn't detract from the positive experience that is to be had here.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
