    Pros

    Good Location, Comfortable Environment, Lawyers and Staff in building are friendly

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to others in the same market
    They say they have one of the best benefit packages but I've had better
    You have to really be friendly on purpose to key people to get in good and feel like you can keep your job
    If you work in HR you have NO one to go to if they do you wrong
    Definite intimidation from higher ups

    Advice to Management

    Try and understand more about your employers and not be contradictory to what you say the firm is all about
