    Pros

    It was just an internship and at a branch in a small town. So nothing really exciting happened, basically everyday just trying your best to sell different securities to clients. The only good thing is that it is close to where I live so going to work takes 5 minutes

    Cons

    Pretty repeated work everyday, peers are not encouraging, slack off for the most of time, there's no feeling of heading up in the overall work environment. Everyone tries to Finish the job instead of Fine-tuning it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote some sort of culture within the organization.


  6. Good and rewarding, with lots of learning opportunities.

    Pros

    get to know the IPO process quickly. challenging life. competitive positions and environments that can take your breath away. Great boss who take care of you and tell you what to do.

    Cons

    Not enough training process. You've got to understand the basics of doing IPOs in China and get prepared that personnels will throw some tough questions to you during the day time jobs.

    Advice to Management

    benefits should increase and more travel compensations.

    Pros

    the company's prospect is promising

    Cons

    kinda bureaucratic, office is kinda tense, staff from different department barely communicate

    Advice to Management

    theres really nothing to say about a financial institution, we all know why we are here. so if you are determined to be in this industry at all, hold no remorse and carry on with all the stress and extra hour. but hopefully less of that over the years.
