Review:

"Work Focused Environment"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

I think providing associates at the firm with some way to blow off steam like a rec room or memberships to clubs could be beneficial to deal with the stress. Although it seems like a minor solution, I think it could be beneficial.

Pros : The When it comes to what the main focus of the firm is, it is all about meeting the goals of the clients and cases. It is a great environment for those like me who are all about making sure to provide a quality of work. The pay and benefits are great. I also think that working with a group of attorneys that have expertise in different areas of the law is something that has given me an extra desire to advance my career in law.
Cons : The The amount of hours that are sometimes needed for some cases can get a bit tiring. Because a lot of the cases we deal with are significant, the superiors definitely try to get as much focus on projects as possible when it comes to effort.
