Client Service Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThey sponsor you to get licensed immediately, there are locations nationwide and internationally so it's good for someone like me who may not plan on living in NYC forever.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
