"High Expectations"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

I think that the firm would benefit from a reworking of their recruiting tactics. It's sad to see how many associates wash out their first year due to not having been screened correctly.

Pros : Associates are held to a high standard, and those that rise to the occasion are amply rewarded. I mean this in a concrete, monetary sense, but also in the more philosophical sense derived from the satisfaction that comes from knowing you've performed a job well.
Cons : The high expectations can work both ways. Associates who can't meet the brutal deadlines or handle the high workload are quickly shunted to the wayside.
