"Great Work/Life Balance"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

I think the leadership team is doing a great job. Keep showing your associates you care on a regular basis and everyone will profit.

Pros : This is simply a great place to work. The training and mentoring program is top notch, and it's obvious that leadership really cares about the wellbeing of their employees. The work/life balance and general work environment here are fantastic.
Cons : It's very hard to find something to dislike about this firm. Communication about strategic matters that relate to the firm could be a bit better.
