Current Employee - Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Think about giving raises more often, even though the starting salary is pretty good. Bring on some more support staff and pay them well to prevent shortages and turn over in that department.

Pros : Benefits and pay are very competitive at this law firm. If you like to travel there is plenty of opportunity here because of all their international clientele, especially in the UK. The technology here is the forefront of the profession as well, and they are very community oriented supporting many programs.
Cons : The hours are long and the work is strenuous. It's a very high pressure place to work and a very competitive environment. If you're a team work type person this is not the place for you.
