    I worked at Advanta full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and healthcare benefits. Great IT department that was always on the leading edge of technology. Ability to move up the corporate ladder

    Cons

    I would have worked here until retirement but unfortunately the economy crashed and the company no long exist. This might have been averted if it wasn't for bad ownership.

    My advice to the owner would have been to try and think of your loyal works that where always there for you and at the end all you thought of was yourself.

    Pros

    Good bosses. Decent culture with a good amount of perks and additional benefits. Good work lifestyle and nice work environment overall.

    Limited career advancement opportunity because the firm wasn't growing. Not great mentorship and pay was slightly below competitors. Somewhat less than stimulating place to work.
