    Pros

    GP is a great company from my personal experience. I started as a student and have grown to high profile accounts very quickly. If you live by the MBM Principals, hard work will pay off and get you to where you want to be. This is a company that is always looking to hire from within the company. To allow people to grow. Managers look to help their employees to develop a career path that is best for them.

    Cons

    Minor things, but nothing major as it is truly a good company.

    You meet lots of great people and create a stream of network. This is a great opportunity that will diversify your skills and create not only a better professional but an ethical individual.

    Cons

    You may have to get used to traveling and being away from home if you have not already.
