Pros

Great culture, very helpful colleagues, challenging work, excellent social atmosphere - your colleagues are also friends. Not at all competitive within your start group - I honestly have no idea who is at the top or bottom of the group.

Cons

The hours can vary dramatically - some 'lifestyle cases' are really only 45 hours a week or so, whereas the worst cases can peak at 100 (though rarely for more than a week). Average is probably in the 55-60 range.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize coaching and train CTLs/Managers/Partners how to be good coaches, not good critics

    Pros

    Very interesting job, great team, great salary. Was very satisfied from everything that the company had to offer. Great experience.

    Cons

    The job is a bit stressful and they have long hourse. But that really is not too bad. If you have the chance, go work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything you are doing is just amazing and great. There is nothing I can say to advice, except continue in the same way as always!
