"Great Work Environment"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Encourage the partners and firm to take a more professional route and go in with the highest standards all around. Keep a positive spirit but also know that you lead the way and others follow.

Cons : They can be a little lax with professionalism and with privacy. They can be a bit too casual and that can come off as lazy to some which can make an impression on newer staff.
