"A Good Place to Work"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

This firm should consider finding adequate parking for their employees. There are always option such as parking garages where people can park.

Pros : This firm does a really great job of taking care of their employees. I always felt appreciated working here and never felt taken advantage of. They give you good pay for your position and benefits as well. They won't make you come if the weather is bad and allows plenty of sick time.
Cons : The location for this firm could be a bit better. It's located pretty far from where I live and parking is not always available. It would be nice if they had a parking lot but spaces are tight.
