    Pros

    * An easy transition into the "working world" from college * Met some lifelong friends * A lot of things are spoon-fed to you

    Cons

    * The culture at the company and moral is terrible * You do the same repetative thing like a monkey every day * You're not encouraged to use your brain * Some middle managers treat you terribly-insult you, cuss at you, yell when you make a mistake * Your "mentor" is too busy/stressed out to help you * Other people resent you for being part of MTP and getting training they never got * You are stuck as an "allocator" for a minimum 2 years before you can even think of moving to the buying side of things

    Advice to Management

    TREAT PEOPLE HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED
