    Fine but not worth it.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Pretty toxic in my experience. Not all departments but the legal department is toxic. So much back biting and drama. Also too much work to manage. I had to work multiple hours a day off the clock. Supervisor was aware of this and just kept saying “well the work has to get done”. So instead of hiring help just turned a blind eye. Burned me out pretty quick.
