Review:

"An Enjoyable Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 13, 2017

Figure out better ways to spread the workload evenly and allow individuals to work better between themselves to spread that out.

Pros : I always feel like I am working around talented individuals that are the best at what they do. That is the best part of it.
Cons : The worst part has to be that sometimes the workload can be overbearing and be quite more than one individual can handle.
