"Lots of Conflict in Leadership"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Leadership needs to get together and come up with a strategy, quick. Employees do not like getting mixed signals, so improving communication is going to be paramount.

Pros : The work here is interesting and there is a lot of it. Associates have no trouble staying busy, and there are plenty of billable hours to go around.
Cons : The leadership team seems to constantly be in conflict with one another. They can't seem to agree on a cohesive direction to take the firm in, and morale is suffering due to their inability to present a united front to employees.
