Review:

"A High Performing Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

Balance life and work so one doesn't take priority over the other. It will be difficult, but the joyous experience to be had at this firm is second to none."

Pros : A high performing firm that by all accounts tackles the greatest of workloads. There is a great sense of teamwork here with each individual working together as one to help each other. The office spaces are large and while the workload is heavy, it doesn't feel overwhelming as your team is there to help. It's a great place to work and you develop pride in every assignment you do.
Cons : Unfortunately, it is easy to get lost within the workload. You're constantly busy and having to juggle life activities as well as work. However, it doesn't detract much as a sense of satisfaction is garnered with every task you take on.
