"This Is a Firm Where You Will Get to Know Your Coworkers and Make Friends For Life"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Overall this is a good place to work, with employees and staff who care about you as a person.

Pros : There is definitely a family atmosphere at this firm. You will make friends with your colleagues and share birthday and baby showers with them.
Cons : The firm is known for demanding a lot of your time on weekends. You will spend a lot of time away from family and maybe even major holidays such as Christmas will be spent at the office.
