"Very cheap firm, smoke and mirrors"

Former Employee - Reviewed on April 08, 2020

Stop being greedy

Pros : Free snacks after 7
Cons : I was an associate there. The firm cuts corners all the time, extremely disorganized across offices, opaque bonus structure (if you miss minimums by an hour they’ll refuse to give it to you), they terminate you without notice and ask you the leave the next day (happened to my friend), got rid of attorney offices in New York, lacking heavily in diversity (they use it as a marketing tactic and make it clear at their associates academy). Can’t recommend it.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes

Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
