Review:

"Very Straightforward Firm With Some Drawbacks"

Former Employee - Reviewed on July 23, 2018

I would like to see this firm raise its bar in terms of raising the minimum requirements to get hired at this firm. I would then like to see management implement daily meetings to keep everyone on the same page.

Pros : It is very easy to land a position at this firm whether you are an attorney or some other staff member. The work environment is very casual and most members at this firm are very friendly.
Cons : It is very easy to get your foot in the door and that being the case, a lot of the staff members tend to be unprofessional in their daily dealings and there are a lot of cases that get sidelined for quite some time.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
