Review:

"Stable, but Underpaid and Somewhat Underappreciated"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 09, 2017

Figure out what it takes to motivate individuals to want to stay with the firm for longer periods. Promoting people from within motivates them and saves the firm money and effort in the long run.

Pros : The environment tends to be pleasant - you feel like you are being assessed on the quality of your work instead of how connected or experienced you are. Partners are mostly pleasant to work with and the firm has a good reputation as a conservative and skilled firm.
Cons : Pay is not great relative to the required billable hours. Advancement potential seems limited. There seems to be a general feeling among lower-ranking individuals that this firm is simply a ""stepping-stone"" to something better, and thus, many don't feel the need to go beyond the minimum requirements.
