Review:

"A Satisfactory Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Consider giving bonuses to people that are doing a good job to make up for the low pay compared to other firms.

Pros : This was not my first choice of work and still isn't but I am happy with this place and I don't plan on leaving any time soon.
Cons : The pay isn't as good as you can get at competing firms and the work can get dull at times.
