Review:

"Flexible butMessy Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 13, 2017

Develop intensive, formal training for new hires.Make the path to advancement more clear.As of right now, it is murky and seems unobtainable.

Pros : There is a decent amount of flexibility with your schedule.You have full control over the cases you work on.The firm understands how important family is.
Cons : The pay is too low.There is always some kind of drama going on.There is little training.They just throw you in the deep end and you better hope you can swim.
