    Pros

    Great hours, great personable employees, great learning experience. I really enjoyed my time here! I would recommend to anyone looking to learn about finance in practice and meet a solid establishment that is successful.

    Cons

    Company was merging so the amount of work for a new intern was very low. Not a lot of tasks I could complete. Felt like I was mooching little bit. Still great!

    Advice to Management

    Establish more tasks that interns can do. Nothing else really. Ability to do one on one meetings with anyone on staff was really helpful, nice touch.
