Review:

"The Perfect Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

New people need to be encouraged to talk about their problems and guided for a short while until they are comfortable with the firm.

Pros : This is the firm of your dreams with a high pay and lots of great co-workers that you will be able to learn from.
Cons : When you first start it will feel daunting with how great some people look compared to yourself. It might seem that you will never get to their levels.
