Review:

"The Competitive Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

The firm needs to look at how to improve the level of respect amongst staff and management. Seminars and workshops should be required to close the gap of division between attorneys, staff and management.

Pros : The salary for employees is very competitive amongst other law firms in the area. The work schedule is very open. A variety of work is very occurring.
Cons : There are too few employees. Using software is difficult because they don't have adequate resources like megabytes to run it. Attorneys are limited to the number of space they have to save their emails.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
