Review:

"Inconsistent Firm Culture"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The firm should seek to develop a more consistent culture between branches so that people are equally willing to transfer elsewhere - otherwise, they will not be motivated to work at the ones that are somewhat lacking in reputation. Make sure brand new physical office spaces have technology that's just as new, and that rising leaders are properly trained - make sure fundamentals are in place before big changes are made, basically.

Pros : Nice, pleasant physical space with good office perks. Benefits are decent. Some job tracks offer quite a bit of room for growth or to demonstrate leadership or autonomy.
Cons : Firm culture can really depend on your branch location - not necessarily a pro or a con, it just implies inconsistency. Lots of turnover in certain areas. Some technology seemed out of date. Training sometimes felt inadequate.
