"An Amazing Firm "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Make sure that people aren't getting overwhelmed with work as that will just lower the quality of their work in the future.

Pros : This firm seems to understand what people's wants and desires and does it's best to fulfill them to the best of their abilities.
Cons : The workload at this firm is much higher than most would expect and you are expected to keep up with it.
