Review:

"Team Oriented Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

There needs to be a pay review to raise pay levels to the level of other firms in the area so that talented people will stay on."

Pros : Excellent open door and hands on policy allowed me to interact with attorneys and learn on a hands-on basis. Flexible schedules and work from home opportunities make the firm a great choice for me as a parent so I would not miss events with my children. A great work-life balance with friendly and interactive senior partners made the firm a happy and fun environment.
Cons : Pay tends to be a little lower than larger firms in the area which I believe could be easily fixed by management. I found that there was not much room to move forward in the firm but still a great place to work with engaging people.
