"Very Uncomfortable Place to Practice"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Managers here need to encourage more team effort if they want to continue onward with this firm. Nothing good will come from people working in an unhappy environment.

Pros : The benefits are not bad at all here. At the end of the year, we see a bonus and have the annual Christmas party. The firm provided us with ongoing educational events.
Cons : People here seem cold and impersonal. The atmosphere made me feel uncomfortable when I had to ask questions or report with a problem.
