Interns treated with disrespect

I worked at Bear Stearns

ProsNo micro-managing. It looks good on a resume. You can get a little training on their Bloomberg terminal if you want.

ConsThe MD's didn't care about anyone but themselves. It was hard to come in every day and greet people who didn't care about your work

Advice to Senior ManagementI would ask that they try a little harder to provide a position experience for those who choose to spend their time there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
