Review:

"Too Many Different Personalities"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I would like to see management step up to the plate and spread the work load out more appropriately. Perhaps they could work on taking fewer cases.

Pros : The starting pay was excellent and I found the front desk staff to be very friendly and helpful as well. I also enjoyed the cases that we worked on during my brief stay at this firm.
Cons : I thought that there was too many personality clashes in the office and I also found the hours to be very stressful (overburdened) at times as well.
