Review:

"An Atmosphere of Great Goals"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

Organizing more meetings and events that can help associates brainstorm with other departments would be something I think that can help with the efficiency of the work place.

Pros : I really like the people I work with here. Everyoneis willing to offer assistance. A lot of the attorneys are knowledgeable in different areas of law. The pay and benefits are also great.
Cons : The only issue I have is that there is a lack of communication between different departments. This can be a little frustrating when trying to deal with some cases that need the relay of information.
