"A Fast Paced Environment "

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Stay on top of what is expected of you. Asking questions from the staff and your co-workers is key to being successful here.

Pros : This is a fast paced environment. At every turn you are being challenged as an employee and a member of the team. This is great because the skills and guidance that is to be had here resonates through your career as an attorney. Your experience working in a fast paced environment only benefits you and your career. I've met some wonderful members here who I learned much from and the experience was very rewarding.
Cons : Communication is hazy between employees and the staff here because of how large the firm is. The fast paced flow of this firm only hinders this communication.
