"A Staple Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Give people a chance to get raises instead of bleeding employees every few years when they leave for better pay.

Pros : This firm seems to have everything that you would expect from a decent firm without any real fluff to distract.
Cons : The pay here is merely average and you are better off leaving after a few years to raise your wages as you likely won't ever get a raise.
