    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is a very laid-back atmosphere and the level of work is challenging. It can get somewhat monotonous with specific filings but overall very interesting work.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, can get a little boring because filing the same types of documents. However, each examination brings new types of transactions.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They have a FANTASTIC work-life balance.
    Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.
    Although it pays less than other businesses in the financial industry, the pay is still competitive since you are also working fewer hours.
    There are many opportunities to be promoted.
    Executives are capable and go-getters.

    Cons

    A bit too much "life" emphasis on the work-life balance of things.
    There are varying ranges of intelligence within the company.

    Advice to Management

    While not necessary to require longer hours, I would recommend expecting more from people during the hours that they are at work (this obviously is a general statement and does not apply to all departments/sectors).
