A great place to work for finance people and economists after college

Business Technology Associate (Current Employee)
McLean, VA

ProsThis is based on my 2008 internship (right before the company had to be bailed out) experience. Great people and atmosphere, interesting projects if you're interested in the real estate and financial industries. I was a Java developer, and was happy with the projects I was given. Just the right workload.

ConsLike many big companies, things can be a little slow, although it can be viewed as a plus by some. It never bothered me, but it could bother other people. I'm not sure what the situation is right now with the company, I've heard things became very different after 2008.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management was great, I have nothing to suggest -- when I was there, I really liked all the managers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
