    I never met an individual that wasn't more than willing to offer me help. This company truly has a small company atmosphere in the best possible way. I was able to take on long term projects independently and trusted with taking on more throughout my time at the company.

    Cons

    There were no cons to the program.

    I have been working at Boston Private full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Our superiors care about us, and we always have opportunity for growth. No one walks around with their nose in the air. Everyone is equal.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between areas. Bank seems to be quite archaic as well. In need of updating.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize. It is the 21st Century.
