Review:

"Disrespectful Partner"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

The work environment here needs to be improved, especially in regards to the partners. Disrespect is never a good thing; it hurts the firm's morale and productivity.

Pros : The firm does a great job providing little perks for the entire office: donuts and bagels, a well-stocked fridge, and birthday parties making working here that much better.
Cons : One of the partners is incredibly disrespectful to associates and support staff, which is having a negative effect on morale in the office.
