    Great company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGenerally a great culture, and a lot of great people to work with. Offices are beautiful and they strive to take care of their people.

    ConsThere are not a lot of opportunities for internal advancement for non-attorneys. And they also allow some terrible managers to stay at the firm longer than they should.
