"Best Place I Have Worked For"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 13, 2017

Keep the energy flowing for everyone but give the work to those that can specialize in it, and let everyone work in the areas they are best at.

Pros : The environment and pay are great. The clients are top class and very big cases come out of this firm.
Cons : The firm is over demanding, although it usually gives results. I can see better results over time if fewer demandsare given.
