    Pros

    Amazing work / life balance, great vacation policy, people are very qualified and knowledgable, true top experts in the filed for the estate planning.

    Cons

    Salaries are very low across the entire firm, no good benefits, no clear path for growth, absence of any job architecture, issues with higher management, no transparency. Hard-working people don't get promoted, only if you suck up to management or unless you demand one. No pay raises if you get promoted.
