    Pros

    Despite taking some time between stages, everyone I met was amazing and made me incredibly interested in joining the firm. Very helpful and friendly staff during the application process. They have shown such an interest in me and have helped at every stage.

    Cons

    Even from my short experiences I can tell that the environment is high pressure and hours are going to be long.

    Pros

    teaming and values from colleagues, great location. New offices and old ones getting refurbished. New Technology on the way

    Cons

    lots of changes, management change their minds too many times middle performing workers get left behind and no motivation to continue

    Advice to Management

    Keep telling us what's happening.. provide more opportunities for development of middle performers and not just for best or worst performers
