"A Busy Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

It would be a good idea to force people to take some vacation time to keep before from cracking and not putting out good work after that.

Pros : This place will keep you busy without being stressed most of the time. They also pay everyone here more than enough to be happy.
Cons : Some people may get exhausted with how much they work us here. They also don't give us that many vacation days.
