Review:

"A Fast Moving Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

It would be a good idea to try to make the work less boring somehow through changing the workflow or something.

Pros : Every day seems to go by here in a blur and it never feels like you are working at all.
Cons : The work itself can be kind of boring as it is almost automatic and requires nearly no thought at all.
