    Pros

    One of the best companies to work for in the OC. The company is still experiencing rapid growth and you're surrounded by some of the smartest, most dedicated hard working folks around. The work is challenging and at the same time rewarding. I had great managers who were very supportive. This company cares about its employees' well being and colleagues have high expectations of each other. Great culture.

    Cons

    Like any large company, the work can get pretty routine and sometimes mundane. Systems are ancient but they are in the process of upgrading all financial tools.
