Suggestions for improvement

  • I would remove all the leaders and start from scratch. Sensitivity training for the attorneys is definitely needed. To be honest I would remove everyone and start from scratch

What I like about the company

The company helps indigent people

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the way the company is ran as a whole. The company only cares about getting numbers up and the attorneys. Morale is low and the way management and attorneys treat others is horrible
