    Pros

    Good work life balance, flexible work options, nice people. You'll be expected to play a part in business development. Nice location in Charlotte.

    Cons

    Smaller firm, smaller pay check. They pursue business development by coming in at very low fees hoping to make them back down the road. Smaller fees, smaller pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Be open honest about their pros and cons to their own employees. Management does a good job trying to keep the work life balance, but you will get paid a little less than your experience might merit at neighboring firms.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Elliott Davis (Columbia, SC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process. Submit application and waited about 2-3 weeks for response at which time they informed me of on campus interviews. Was more of a personality interview asking me to talk about things on my resume.
