Review:

"Alright for a Short Stay, at Least"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Create an atmosphere that encourages professionalism and development. Do something about persistent troublemakers who don't pull their own weight. If some changes are not made, many people will continue to simply use the firm as a stepping stone to another workplace that's more desirable and lucrative.

Pros : Hours are rather reasonable. Tech is usually up to date. Firm is generally organized and well-run in certain ways, and is a decent choice for a new graduate.
Cons : Pay tends to be fairly poor. Not many opportunities for promotion. Too much gossip and drama in certain departments. You get the impression that few people are invested in a long-term career at the law firm.
