    Truly great culture, good people, ethical and cooperative behavior at the mid-management level

    VAR.. maybe we really didn't need to jack up the VAR more, despite what you said.

    Pros

    looked great on resume. i learned a lot about financial marketing, industry players, and key executive people. nice location to work, and the mentorship programs was nice too.

    Cons

    well, it tanked. it could not be that great of a company if it had to close. some upper management were cocky. other times, it felt like the old boy network. if you are a woman, you have to work extra hard to prove your worth

    Advice to Management

    well, you guys dont exist any more. so my advice is to find another job and dont mess up the next organization.
