"Perfect for Long Term"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The only thing that could be improved is the hiring process which took more than a week with little to no notification during it.

Pros : This firm has a very flexible schedule and extremely competitive pay. It was awarded the Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.
Cons : The biggest con with this firm is the way they keep track of your time. It's done in six minute increments which is very odd.
