Good place to build a career once you get past the lower levels.

Vice President (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsTrue meritocracy. If you add value to the company you will be rewarded and advance. Most Vice Presidents and above are good, but obviously not all. If you are good with people and managing internal relationships you can be very successful.

ConsDifficult to advance from the very lower levels. Fairly stressful work especially as cost cutting hits the industry. Fair amount of politics as with any large organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
