    I have been working at Ayco full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to the best, most challenging clients in the industry. Development of significant technical skills if you take advantage.

    Cons

    Goldman's involvement dictates "one size fits all" decisions made for a global investment bank that are not appropriate or logical for Ayco around procedures, compensation and staffing. Heavy procedural rules slow down even the most basic tasks. Technology continues to improve but we are digging out from a large hole.

    Advice to Management

    Keep selling the vision. At Ayco, you are given opportunity. It is not perfect here, but it is as close to a meritocracy as you will find in this industry. Most employees are engaged and believe in the mission. Support them and they will get you there.
