Review:

"Egos Galore"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

Find a balance of pride and humility. Continue to treat your employees well, especially the ones that have been at the firm for 10+ years as they are great mentors for new employees.

Pros : This firm takes a lot of pride in what they do, which can be good to an extent. There are many employees that have been here for a long time that are able to help show you the ropes when you are new.
Cons : This is where the big egos come into play. Being located in LA has caused some people in this firm to get a bigger head than needed. I'm all for being proud, but the cockiness is too much.
