Review:

"Not One ofthe Best Firms"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

I think that a management overhaul is needed. The firm has gone too far with the current management. They should be sent to either a training course or fired. The pay and benefits don't make up for the abuse the staff gets regularly.

Pros : One of the best things about this firm is that the quality of work that is done is second to none. The staff ensures that the work is thorough and there isn't anything over looked. The firm really takes care of the employees with great benefits and a great salary, which helps us wanting to ensure that the quality is there. It's a great place in that regard.
Cons : Unfortunately, great pay can only get so far. The work at the firm can be depressing and that doesn't help with the verbal abusive the staff receives from the management. The workplace is toxic and if you aren't being yelled at by management, you are dealing with there not being any real leadership here. The turnover is very high. The management knows this and they just have a ""learn on your own"" approach to new people. However, they do something wrong they are going to be yelled at and ridiculed.
