    Pros

    great learning environment, supportive team structure, ever a dull moment in my 9 years here; I always tell people that here is where you learn to play a bigger role elsewhere.

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    use technology to transform operation first. Break unnecessary walls. Cut unnecessary staff.

    I worked at Bain Capital (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get paid a lot of money, it's a highly prestige firm, and get to work with interesting people

    Cons

    The firm is structurally disadvantaged as an investor vs. its peer institutions due to an intellectual dishonest culture that pushes out dissenters and encourages yes--men.

    Pros

    Great place to work at. High caliber employees through and through as well as top notch facilities and dining.

    Cons

    Hours can be long and like all jobs in this field entry level work can get repetitive. Work hard, show up early and you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make yourself available to new hires. The more company outings and social events the better. Introducing individuals across groups.
