Review:

"A Fun Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

While having fun is important here it would be a good idea to keep an eye on people to keep them from slacking off.

Pros : Everyone here seems to have fun and enjoy work everyday nobody what seems to be going on. We just tend to have a fun environment here.
Cons : Sometimes people can be slow to finish something you need them to do because they are slacking off instead of working.
