    Former Employee - Financial Analyst Intern in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Financial Analyst Intern in Seattle, WA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, really cool experiences made available to interns, good culture created around teaching interns, people make themselves available to you if you would like to hear more about the company, the tours are great, the HR do a good job of bringing in a good group of people in for the summer and treat them very well.

    Cons

    Work experience was not very interesting, managers get overworked and forget that you are there, sometimes this also makes it difficult to receive feedback on anything that you work on.

    Advice to Management

    Structure of the company is extremely tall. It takes digging through layers and layers of people to get from an entry level position to an executive position. Employees should be encouraged to be more entrepreneurial and innovative.
