Review:

" Law Firm with Kind Employees"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The law office needs to consider hiring more employees and staff to take on heavy work load. Also, the firm should look into increasing the wages for the hard working staff and employees.

Pros : The law office firm is encompassed by a group of people which are kind. The firm offers some incentives that are seem to be beneficial to the employees and staff.
Cons : The office does not do a great job in offering a salary which is low in terms of the work which is performed by employees and staff. The firm requires too much time to be invested into the work which needs to be completed.
