"Great Place To Work"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Hopefully management will do something soon to keep the office politics to a minimum. The work environment here is good, but it could be even better with a few policy changes.

Pros : Associates here are given the freedom to work as they see fit. As long as you meet your billable hours quota you can do what you want, when you want. It's nice to not always have management breathing down my neck and micromanaging me.
Cons : Office politics can sometimes get in the way of productivity and are not always enjoyable. Backbiting and acrimony are more common than they should be.
