Review:

"This firm is Fun"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Management needs to consider being more firm with their staff. Having too much leniency creates a hectic work environment where work doesn't get done.

Pros : I've been at this firm for almost a year now and my experience has been O.K. I like the people I work with and management is pretty fun and laid back. They throw a lot of parties for staff during the year and always try to create a fun environment.
Cons : Management can be a little too laid back sometimes. The office can feel a bit immature at times with gossip and other nonsense and management just doesn't seem to care.
