    I joined a month back and I am very happy about the relaxed and flexible work environment (my previous financial management company was rigid and extremely stress ful so its like a blessing for me to be able to work here).

    I cant think of any as of now (its still too early to comment on this)

    Advice to Management

    None. I am very happy with the new employee orientation program which gave such a wonderful insight into First American history and culture.
