"A Fantastic Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Don't be afraid to take your work home with you for the first few weeks, it will help you get adjusted much more quickly.

Pros : I have been working for Akerman LLP for 2 years and I must say it's been a pleasure. Staff is super friendly and helpful, wonderful environment.
Cons : The scheduling can be tough to work with at times. It's a very busy firm with a very high workload, but it's manageable.
