"A Great Firm To Begin With"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Find a balance with work and life. There is a lot of responsibilities expected from you when you work at this firm, while it can feel rewarding, it becomes very exhausting.

Pros : A great firm that challenges its employees to be the best version of themselves. The firm and the staff here are great to work with. This firm goes above expectations with providing accommodating workspaces and a tough atmosphere that feels rewarding. It was a pleasure working with firm.
Cons : Hours here are long and tedious. With so much work expected from you, at times it can become difficult to balance life and work duties.
