"Large and Growing Law Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Continue to invest in the firm and grow its size. It's great the way you are going and building a bigger and better firm will secure bright futures for a lot of workers.

Pros : The firm is really growing very rapidly lately. This brings plenty of work and plenty of opportunity for advancement for hard working people. With offices sprinkled all around the country there is a really diverse set of people and skills in the firm now.
Cons : The rapid growth has had its problems with organization. Divisions aren't lined up very well and there is confusion over who is going to be handling certain cases.
