"Modern, but also Old-Fashioned "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Spend more time listening to people - there are insights you can get from people that they'll only give you if they really feel understood. Strive for more fairness and transparency in decision making.

Pros : The firm uses technology quite well, which you might not expect - everything is up to date, and some jobs can be remotely performed, at least some of the time. Benefits are definitely above average.
Cons : Has a lot of the problems inherent to a larger and more established firm. Management sometimes seems unwilling to listen to or to deal with concerns. Not a lot of room for growth, in some functions, and when there are opportunities, you feel like they are distributed to those who are ""insiders"".
