    Pros

    I was in the Operations Analyst program for the full 2 years and it was a great program. We were given books and classes about various financial topics, there were always networking events, and there was a solid structure for moving into a management role after the program was finished.

    Cons

    Some of the program was disorganized, but that's it.

    Don't bet the entire firm on the views of three people and keep it a secret from your employees.
