Review:

"Plenty of Available Work"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Go into this firm knowing that it will be fast paced every day and that you will have plenty of work to be done but not to rush because of the workload.

Pros : This firm has a good number of associates and a good reputation so they obtain a good amount of work to spread around. There will always be something to work on.
Cons : There is a lack in communication and leadership so it can seem somewhat chaotic and hectic at times. There is always a question of who has the ultimate say so in the day to day business.
