" Law Firm with Appreciation for Employees"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

The law office should reconsider offering wage increases in smaller increments in a shorter period of time to the hard working staff and employees. There should be a continuation of appreciation for the hard working employees at the law firm.

Pros : The law firm does a great job of offering several incentives to employees. The firm offers bonuses to its employees. The partners of the law firm recognize the hard work perform by the employees in their department.
Cons : The law firm does not offer a wage increase in a short period of time. The amount of work hours requires focus. The healthcare plan offered is at a high cost.
