    decent company to work for

    Jan 5, 2021 - Document Review Attorney 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The thing I like most about working here is that they leave you alone so you can work -- not a lot of picky time restrictions, administrative stuff, or time card complexities. Both a pro and con here -- the experience changes depending on who your project manager is.

    Cons

    Training is a little shaky -- there's not a dedicated process for keeping the team appraised of changes as the project evolves.
