Great mentorship

Intern (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I worked at Pershing LLC as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe company is very loyal, according to the many 10 to 20 year employees I met while there. Lots of room for programming energy to be used well.

ConsSlow moving juggernaut of a place. Don't expect to have the latest tools or possibly to even have admin rights.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a Software Bootcamp for young coders that is sandboxed away from the "Sensitive Information". You need it and so do we.
