I worked at Forethought Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smaller financial services company, so can be nimble and quick. Can get to decision makers quickly and develop strong collaborative relationships. Overall, the people are great and make working hard a little bit easier because everyone is in the same boat. The company is too small for one person to not pull their weight.

Cons

With small comes many people wearing multiple hats. A lot of folks are stretched thin, but they're committed to the company. Technology is not great and they rely a lot on the people to just get the work done without a lot of resources.

Advice to Management

Allow some more time for development and realistic time frames for accomplishing tasks. People are working hard to meet deadlines - but it is constant and they need some time to breathe.
