"Great Place To Work"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

If this firm were to beef up the salary and add a few perks this might suddenly become the best firm in the region.

Pros : The people and work environment at this firm are both very good. Everyone is pretty laid back and easy to get along with, and the support staff is incredibly good at what they do.
Cons : The salary and benefits are rather low compared to what other firms in this area are offering. The work environment helps to make up for this pitfall, however.
