Review:

"Knowledgeable in Law but that is pretty much it"

Current Employee - Reviewed on February 26, 2019

For once in your life, show a little empathy and a willingness to work with others. Such greed and bitchiness is extremely unattractive

Pros : The firm definitely gives their focus on clients cases. They also work around the clock which is nice sometimes, until they bother you at 2:20AM
Cons : Very technologically challenged, needy, and lack of caring for others. Its really pathetic actually, and has caused me to switch to another firm, who is more charismatic to my wishes.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
Job type : Contract
