Review:

"A Law Firm with Collaboration "

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

There needs to be a higher priority placed on staff over billing. The firm should offer breaks in which staff and management could participate in tasks or activities to reduce stress to be more efficient employees.

Pros : It's a working environment in which the staff collectively works together. The office is full of positive people. Staff is provided with good benefits.
Cons : The firm seems to care more about billing their clients overall. Since billing is the highest priority, high levels of stress result as staff works hard in order to bill their clients.
