    I have been working at Cowen Group full-time

    Pros

    Communication through the different levels of the company is great. It's easy to get a hold of anyone you might need. Reputation of working for a publicly traded company is always a plus

    Cons

    Benefits aren't the greatest and my work/life balance is off.
