Review:

"A Great Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Consider paying people more to keep them from leaving to higher paying jobs when they get tired of the low pay here.

Pros : Ever since my first day here if I have ever had an issue I have been able to quickly resolve it without drama.
Cons : The pay here isn't the best for what we are doing and people often leave fairly quickly because of that.
