    I have been working at Berkadia full-time

    I have been working at Berkadia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice, open minded, professional people working here with the right attitude towards change, responsibility, ownership and support. Good potential and support for career growth as well as stability.

    Cons

    The company is currently transitioning towards agile methodologies, this comes with some growing pain. Nothing unusual, but sometimes the precise mission lacks a little bit of communication and transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
