"Law Firm with Some Culture"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The law office does a great job of encompassing a family culture. The employees and staff seem to work collectively and should continue be encouraged to do so. Management should look at offering more opportunities to grow within the law firm.

Pros : The law firm is composed of a group of staff and employees which put their best effort into the work which they perform. The environment has resulted in positive one as the staff and employees behave in having values of family.
Cons : The law firm does not offer the opportunity to grow. The size of the law office firm is small and causes promotions to not occur often.
