      Good benefits, bad pay

      Pros

      Good benefits, most people are decent enough.

      Cons

      Bottom line only company. Pay very little compared to other companies. The one time I got a poor review when I went to the manager, turns out all the analysts in my department were given poor reviews because they didn't want to pay us the regular 2% bonus. "Up to 10% bonus" is a joke. Can you really trust the merits of your leadership when they're all related to each other?
