    Pros

    - A lot of flexibility and emphasis on work-life balance. Freedom to work from home occassionally is a nice benefit, and a fair amount of vacation time out the gates as a college hire.

    - High level of involvement in day-to-day work from business directors offers opportunity to learn from experienced / savvy professionals.

    - Able to make lateral career changes to different departments / lines of businesses as your interests change.

    - Fairly competitive salary / 401k match.

    - Decent name recognition if business school is a long term goal.

    - Strong alumni network if desire is there to leave.

    Cons

    - Arbitrary differences between some job families.

    - Richmond is not the most exciting city in the world.

    - Benefits seem to be trending downward over last few years compared to late 90s.

    - Difficult credit environment hits credit card companies hard.

    - Frequent organizational changes can make getting results difficult.

    - Not all departments are equal during evaluation time. Make sure you're in the right organization.

    - Tendency to act in extremes, and then change behavior to the complete opposite in reaction to news / markets / audits.

    - Significant amount of time putting slides together for hour long presentations.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the impacts of paying new hires more than existing employees
