"A Slog of a Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I suggest having some fun team building stuff to keep people from getting bored. People will work better if they aren't so bored all the time.

Pros : The work here is extremely easy and the pay is decent enough for it. We even get a decent amount of vacation time.
Cons : Every day here is a slog and you just count down the hours until it is over. The work is boring and requires no thought at all.
