    I worked at First Marblehead

    Pros

    Some of the people are great to work with and very friendly.

    Cons

    People are willing to throw you under the bus to move up. If they see you succeeding they will sure not to allow you to move.

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Medford, MA

        I worked at First Marblehead for more than 20 years

        Pros

        Nice people, the Medford location was not bad, near T.

        Cons

        Company changed name to Cognition Financial (Cognition Lending) and moved to Back Bay in Boston. Still near T but parking is horribly expensive for those who drive to work. New space is smaller than former location.

        Advice to Management

        Move back to Medford!
