    Pros

    Very friendly people. You can talk to anyone and usually get a nice response and some good advice. Great name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Very boring and tedious work. Manager made it seem like her work was so hard and stressful when in reality she was more of a secretary than a financial services associate.
