"Cooperative Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

The firm should work on having events in which more staff would be open to participating. Retreats, potlucks, or meet and greets would seem like a great way to be able to meet more of the staff which has not met other staff and employees in the office.

Pros : A law firm in which staff and employees work alongside together and have created a pleasant environment. The firm offers benefits. The staff is respectful.
Cons : Part of the firm is not on the same page. Some of the employees do not open themselves to working in the same pleasant environment. There needs to be more staff hired.
