"Great Management; Not a Bad Place to Work"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

This is a good company to work for, but you can entice your employers to stay by offering better benefits and/or slightly higher wages

Pros : This firm has a great reputation and it was a great experience working for them. The management there is very good. I always understood exactly what was expected of me and I was comfortable voicing any concerns or questions.
Cons : The pay and benefits are decent, but they aren't as competitive as some of the other firms that I've worked for.
