Pros

What can you say, just a great place to work and thrive. Credit derivative analysis was my favorite part of the job.

If you were looking for long term opportunities, maybe this company was not the most ideal place to be at.

Advice to Management

To the management... I just have one minor criticism and request for you: Please pay me my year end bonus... please!
