"Hard Work, But Good in the Short Term"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Create a culture where partners encourage associates in order to improve retention and close the gap between partners and associates.

Pros : Associates at the firm are very supportive of each other. Collaboration and compromise are frequent and welcome.
Cons : Partners at the firm can be very pushy and demanding. Some associates work in fear and dread of those higher up in the firm that themselves. Hours and work for associates can be daunting and not great for work-life balance.
