    I have been working at Assante Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been there only for the 2 last weeks but I find that they are very professional and organized. The company culture seems to be very positive. Everybody is very helpful, highly professional and nice.

    Cons

    My manager left a week after my interview so I do not have anyone to report which is kind of complicated when you first start.

    I do not have an office either because they are in renovation but it should come soon hopefully.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard for me to give any advice to the management since I haven't got the chance to know them. However, like I say, my first impression of the company is really good and highly professional. Continue to invest in Assante brand, I think it is the right direction to go in the actual finance world. Assante has a really good image and foundation and you should increase its notoriety.
