"Wonderful People"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 25, 2017

Management should be accountable for their actions. Stop playing the blame game. Pay people what they are worth.

Pros : The people here are wonderful and have been here for years. You get a lot of knowledge in legal processes and time management.
Cons : The work load is unrealistic and the pay is not worth the stress. Management is immature.
