Some people pretend to be your friend and then turns around and throws you under the bus!

    Pros

    Good insurance plan and benefits. The name looks good on your business card or resume in the technology and start-up world.

    Cons

    Get paid commercial banking dollars while being pushed to work investment banking hours. It also seems as if 'urgency' has been turned into 'crisis' all the time.

    Advice to Management

    HR and Management need to reconcile the strategy differences in compensation. I was always told the official targets by HR, but it was never reflected in my discussions and actions with management.
