    Pros

    -start working in finance
    -coworkers are awesome

    Cons

    -the work environment encourages and promotes people who care about themselves first
    -becoming more of a sales environment
    -terrible vacation time. management however fails to notice as they are themselves on vacation.
    -you really can just become a pawn who reports in, sells, then leaves. it sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care about your employees. like actually care, don't hide behind your work doesnt need to suck logo. turnover is an issue and you need to find ways to fix it.
