Review:

"Excellent Benefit's"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

They should cut back on the video conferencing and there should be more weekly conferences and discussions that are face to face.

Pros : The benefits of working at this firm are great. The salary is great and they just expanded the paid leave not too long ago.
Cons : There tends to be too much video conferencing for my tastes. I prefer more face to face interaction with my fellow employee's.
