" Law Firm Offering Experience"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

There needs to be training of management to better communicate within the department to make sure everyone is communicating collectively. The environment which staff and employees have created should be something that should be maintained.

Pros : A law firm in which the environment offers the opportunity gain experience. The space at the law firm is pleasant and is composed of hard working staff and employees.
Cons : The law firm falls short because of the lack of respect for employees and staff privacy. There seems to be a lack of communication in the law firm.
