"Great Small Firm to Work for"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

If you are looking for somewhere to move up quickly, this isn't the place for you. If you want a good job that you can count on, you can't go wrong here.

Pros : It is a small firm which allows you to build relationships with all of your colleagues. You won't find these relationships as much in bigger firms.
Cons : Since it is a smaller firm, there isn't much room for movement to higher positions. The money could be higher as well.
