    Student Associate

    Student Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSense of community in an exciting workplace. Many networking opportunities and chances to make friends with other Student Associates (interns)

    ConsPay is low but manageable. It is better than an unpaid internship. It is hard living in the city and only making 8.00 an hour less taxes but the experience is so hands on that it makes it all worth it

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Abandoned Property Audit REQUIRES a top notch skip tracer, who has strong CRM skills to research

    A/P Consultant- Abandoned Property NYS (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsMy boss(s) were excellent listeners and very interested in my progress and helped me gain internal efficiency.

    ConsJust a huge organization with complexity to get things accomplished, ( too many cooks)

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire your interns and temps. They want to work there and are already trained to "hit the ground running". Keep being kind to your subordinates. It is welcomed and makes one like coming to work there. Continue demanding productivity over weekends as you appreciate it. Your accounting team is excellent there.
