Review:

"Very Poor Pay"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

I'd like to see this firm become more competitive and drastically increase its starting pay. This way they will hold onto whoever they may hire and will be able to grow as a firm.

Pros : The office environment is very casual and everyone is very friendly. The hours are also great and offer a lot of flexibility.
Cons : The pay is dismal and is well below what most other firms would start their employees at. While I was working here a lot of people were quitting which made getting work done very difficult.
