Review:

"Not For Everyone"

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 18, 2017

Treat new and existing employees with respect and professionalism.These individuals need privileges just like the attorneys get.Future partnership opportunities are also a good idea.

Pros : The work and life balance is great and the hours are stable.I received insurance benefits since I was a full time employee.There is a small bonus potential.
Cons : When I joined the firm, I had career growth in mind.I quickly realized there was no hope in this area at this firm.The salary is extremely low and doesn't increase over time.
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
