    I have been working at Prospect Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Aside from working with talented, smart, motivated individuals and top-notch leaders, Prospect offers great benefits, awesome outings and an overall flexible working environment. The company invests a lot of time and money into their workforce and every individual in the company, whether a MD or an Admin is treated with the same respect.

    Cons

    You will probably end up wearing many hats because there are no pigeon holes here.
