  1. "Good brand...don't take care of their people...and not so helpful when you depart"

    Pros

    Good brand and great learning experience. You get to see a lot very quickly and get to have a lot of exposure to companies, people, executive.

    Cons

    Promise of helping you when you depart is a joke. This is about them making themselves feel better so go in with eyes wide open that they will actually do somethin for you.
