    Pros

    Nice environment to work in. The attorneys are very smart and very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Pay raise is very small for Administrative staff. They can do way better. Also staff recognition could be more frequent.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive salaries. And staff could do better with an annual function instead of every two years. Stop being greedy!
