    Awesome experience

    Software Developer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat experience working on things that interested me. Mentor and manager also provided me lots of opportunities for me to improve business knowledge and skills. Extremely fun and close knit team, enjoyed going to work everyday.

    Campus Ambassador Intern

    Campus Ambassador (Former Employee) Westwood, CA

    ProsCompany structure is very flat, you get access to talking with people working very high up.

    ConsTraining is horrible, there is one meeting a year, other than a few phone calls every so often. Told us they would teach us the Bloomberg Terminal, but ended up not doing so. Pay also used to be very good compensation-wise, but no longer.
