      Pros

      Create a transparent and inclusive environment with an emphasis on training and professionality.

        I worked at Lorber Greenfield Polito & Pengilly

        Pros

        Great co-workers, Flexible hours, Mr. Cornell is the best individual I've had the opportunity to work with.

        Cons

        Poor Management, Poor Pay, No Room for Growth

        Advice to Management

        Hire another HR rep. One is not sufficient to oversee the operations of 50+ attorneys.
