"Law Firm that offers Benefits"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

There needs to be a continuation of partners offering more opportunities to juniors to learn. The amount of work should be reduced alongside the amount of hours.

Pros : The law firm is a place in which the level of work is in a higher degree. Partners of the law firm offer opportunities to juniors to learn more in the field.
Cons : The amount of work associated within the firm results in hours of work that may not be for everyone. IT department has some restrictions that can sometimes cause difficulty in competing day to day tasks.
