      Pros

      Foster Global has Decent pay at start coffee is provided. If you work with horse blinders on you’ll do well.

      Cons

      Reviews are overly critical so that raises are minimal. Managing partner is condescending and antisocial. High turnover. Favorites get better treatment. If you give 2 wks notice managing partner will berate you and say you owe him your knowledge and all that you’ve learned. Usually he’ll make you leave on the day you give your notice.
