Review:

"Open environment but restrictive advancement path"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

A lot of work is needed to manage a suitable work life balance. Management should promote work-life balance and should treat everyone fairly instead of playing favoritism.

Pros : The firm has very open team environment and great work life balance. The firm has good and friendly environment considering its small to medium size. I really like the knowledge base and experience of some of the attorneys here.
Cons : The worst part is restrictive advancement path for new attorneys and small unbalanced team structure. I have also spent here long frustrated hours without any direction or definition from upper management.
