"A Nearly Perfect Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Make sure that people are given enough time off to prevent them from burning out.

Pros : You will make more here than anyone else with similar jobs and on top of that we have lots of friendly workers.
Cons : The quality of work expected here is extremely high and you are expected to keep it at that level all the time.
