Review:

"Law Firm with Good Management"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

There needs to be a focus on offering employees a varied work schedule. Management should work towards improving in the area of treating the support team with more respect.

Pros : The law firm offers a salary that is in the same area as other firms. The firm does pay attention to the office and its employees. Employees are shown recognition for what they do for the firm.
Cons : The law firm falls short in offering a varied work schedule for people who struggle with balancing work. The support team is not treated with the same respect as others.
