Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Working conditions are quite good at this firm. Be prepared for sudden changes in management or a completely different work assignment from time to time.

The best thing about working here is the great support you will get from the lower level staff as well as the top management. All members of this firm want you to succeed and that is very welcoming.

The firm has experienced staff turnover which means a reduction and overhaul in its practice areas. The firm may not be seeking to expand in your area of expertise, or they may be downsizing.
