    I have been working at Godsey-Martin Law Firm full-time

    Pros

    Joined this company last year. Since then, I have seen nothing but growth and success in this firm. Excellent work environment and culture. Off course, like every other company there are ups and downs, but usually there are lot of ups. Great location, friendly staff, growth opportunity and excellent pay.

    Cons

    Small office culture and not willing to change. Change is a big no no in some departments. It scares them to the extent of quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Do what your doing. Its working for ya.

    Pros

    The Owners are great and they care for the community as well as their staff. Every day is different and exciting. It feels great coming to work every day, knowing I'm helping make a difference in our clients' lives.

    Cons

    It's hard to hear about people being hurt in accidents; especially when children are involved. It's hard to see pictures of bad accidents or in worst cases, knowing that someone died as a result of someone's carelessness.

    Pros

    The culture is progressive and fast pace but definitely fair. Everyone generally cares about the well being of their clients.

    Cons

    A business can always improve, but there really isn't anything that stands out distinctly. I left on good terms towards another opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Their bonus system was good when they actually decided to give bonuses. The company frequently had food catered and love to do company happy hours,

    Cons

    The amount of work doesn't coincide with the pay. You are definitely underpaid. Management is hardly around to help but only show up when things don't go as they plan it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with your employees and how business is being conducted.
