Pros : This is an amazing firm. The staff is pleasant to work with. It feels very professional here and there are big open office spaces provided .The workload is manageable and well-handled so that each attorney knows what to work on for the day. Overall, a great firm to work with that radiates with professionalism.
Cons : Unfortunately, it hard to excel within the firm. Promotions are far and few so it is hard to come by them. At the same time it is hard to balance work and life within this firm. Sometimes the workload can become hectic.
