Review:

"Benefits Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

There need to be classes for learning how to communicate effectively for management. Staff should be rewarded with a higher salary. Rewards should be handed, such as gift cards to promote appreciation for staff.

Pros : The environment created at the law firm is positive and full of staff that has open arms. There are opportunities here to grow in one's career.
Cons : Some of the benefits are not ideal for many of the staff. Management does a poor job of communicating with them. Some of the employees feel like they are not appreciated.
