    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Weaver full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of smart engaging people to work with, large firm with small firm feel, very social firm, lots of events, good people. Good work product and great clients.

    Cons

    Not many. Occasionally hard to connect with partners that want a set result or research to point to one clear answer in grey areas. Common problem (anywhere). Candors write-up to encompass several possible avenues, and with quality write-up, could help with communication. Goes both ways. Quality control could be managed more effectively/efficiently.
