Review:

"Too Disorganized"

Former Employee - Reviewed on July 23, 2018

Management needs to make sure that everyone stays on the same page throughout all stages of working on a case. I also believe that our current office location needs to be downsized quite a bit.

Pros : Everyone was very helpful to me during my stay at this firm as an intern. I also found the front desk staff to be exceptional and very professional in all regards.
Cons : This firm is way too disorganized. Everyone is usually off doing their own thing, even during times when we should all be putting our heads together in preparation of a big case.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
