Review:

"Nice People, but Underpaid"

Current Employee - Reviewed on September 02, 2017

Treat your staff with enough respect to pay them appropriately. We don't slack up on the work, so please don't slack up on the pay.

Pros : The staff and associates here are friendly and welcoming. It's a comfortable place to work and I've made a lot of friends at the firm that I expect to stay in touch with even if I should happen to leave.
Cons : The pay isn't the greatest for the type of work you do here. The work isn't the easiest for the pay, either. I feel like I would be getting a bit more at a competitive firm.
