      Great company but too corporate

      Pros

      little to no micro management, if you do your job no one bothers you. plenty of help provided if needed through industry specific specialists, DM, other branches/onsites. If you ask for support from co workers, it will be given. just like any job you get what you put in.

      Cons

      very corporate atmosphere and high employee turnover, if the right team is around you, you can be very successful. get ready to work long hours.
