"A very large experienced firm that really is top class"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

I would like to see this firm give promotions and reviews more frequently. Considering how big this firm is this should not be much of an issue.

Pros : I loved it while I was at this firm. There is always an interesting case to work on and everyone is very helpful and accommodating. I also enjoyed the friendship that I formed with my secretary.
Cons : Being such a large firm moving up the ranks can feel like quite the task indeed. I felt as though work reviews and promotions were not given out enough.
