Review:

"Growing In Excellence"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 09, 2017

Installing some sort of benefits program for growing knowledge that will help the firm should be something that is here. When people feel that they are gaining something, they will be more willing to learn. Learning and expanding will help the firm grow even more and not continue to hinge on tried and true formulas of business.

Pros : The staff is personable and laid back. The firm really knows what is important and caters to that importance. The staff is nice and open to helping each other and anyone that is looking for help on a task. The benefits package was a huge plus as well, as the firm made sure that all staff was paid appropriately.
Cons : In most cases, if there is a problem the only answer was one that was immediately going to solve the problem. It really didn't matter what would happen in the future, as long as it was solved quickly. Another issue is that the firm doesn't really seem to mind that some staff aren't keen on learning beyond what they know. That hinders growth to some degree within the firm.
