    Pros

    It is a great learning experience. Teaches you to be responsible, work hard, and how to interact with people.

    Cons

    Long work hours. You have to pay for literally everything. Even the coffee in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for the coffee at least. Please.
    Otherwise, keep up the good work. You do a good job motivating the employees.


  2. This company cares about its employees and gives a sense of community

    Pros

    Free lunch at the home office, staff is well trained, managers have top notch talent, lots of networking opportunity and clubs

    Cons

    They don't hire much in the investment departments at home office. 1 person doing the job of several at another firm. While many internships are a "try out" for being hired, this is likely not one of them.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, the reason they don't hire is that nobody leaves. People are obviously happy and performance is great, so keep up the good work.
