    Solid conservative company.

    Marketing Database Consultant (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood work-life balance, lots of opportunity for growth and movement, vertically or laterally. With economic recovery, our division is definitely expanding.

    I'm a technical (mostly) worker, and looking to switch industries, so take my review with a grain of salt if you're really into FS.

    ConsBig company, can lose career focus if you stay fixed on the minutia and company processes. Benefits have degraded down to average.
