    I worked at Van Kampen Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company culture is one of professionalism, knowledge, and collaboration. I loved the company, the culture, the willingness to help and share. This job taught me a lot about mutual funds. I was challenged with the Series 6 and 63 exams, which was a great achievement.

    Cons

    Great company-only downside is lack of opportunities for growth.
