I think at the end of the day, my only advice is to hire more quality workers on and try and get the workload better split between each of us. As I've said in my cons, this is work before life and that only works for so long, for so many people.Pros : My time spent at Howard & Howard has been and surely will continue to be an amazing experience. With a friendly work environment all the way from the bottom, up to our CEO Mark Davis. It's definitely a positive experience and a great place to start out at.
