Hard but valuable

Student (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsYou'll probably get a pretty nice job afterward.

ConsThe place will probably kick your ass, and seriously decrease the size of any ego you may have.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe sink-or-swim attitude towards students knocks some smart people out of a decent GPA simply because they lack guidance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
