"A Really Helpful Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

Management needs to be more direct with their employees and less confusing. This would help employees feel more comfortable at the firm.

Pros : The location of this firm is in a great spot. It's not too far from downtown and where I live and parking is always available. The firm offers a lot of room for growth too which is helpful for those looking for a position that offers a climb up the ladder.
Cons : My only gripe with this firm is that management can be very back and forth. One minute they enjoy helping you and asking questions if need be, then other times they give you the cold shoulder. I just wish they were more consistent.
