Review:

"A Wonderful Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Don't feel overwhelmed at first, because it's a pretty chill environment once you get used to the intense workflow.

Pros : I started at Vedder Price, P.C. 4 years ago and I'm sure I made the right choice. Management is very understanding and will do whatever they can to help you succeed.
Cons : There is a huge workload and sometimes it seems like it will never end. But they understand that there are only so many hours in the day.
