Review:

"Pleasant, But Sometimes Disorganized "

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Talk to everyone more frequently to communicate with them about their needs and your expectations. People do not perform well when there is stress due to uncertainty - when this can be prevented, there's no reason they need to be subjected to it.

Pros : Benefits and pay were satisfactory, for me. Work was relatively interesting. Associates and staff were easy to get along with. I thought the location was good, but there were mixed opinions on this, based on who I asked.
Cons : The firm just seemed kind of disorganized, at times. For example, sometimes, there was so much work that my previously scheduled time off was basically postponed with really short notice, and other times, there was really not much to do at all. Some people received new technology without really needing it that badly, while others who really needed it went without.
