"Feels Like Home Here"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

As I mentioned, I would like to see more promotions given out to those that are deserving. I feel as though the work can be quite difficult and we have won some big cases in the past after of which promotions should of been given out.

Pros : There is plenty of work to go around and I have found as someone that really enjoys their work, that this is beneficial since I am always learning new things on the job and am always busy which is a huge plus.
Cons : I have found the room for advancement in the law firm itself to be somewhat lacking. I would like to see more promotions given out to me and my fellow employees.
