    Pros

    - Great career growth opportunity

    - Managers understand your work and even any technical details, your contribution is well recognized

    - Very good pay and benefits
    - Helpful and friendly colleagues, form whom I have learned a lot

    Cons

    It is a little challenging to prioritize works due to the number of projects because all are important and exciting. Therefore, it is a little difficult to achieve good work/life balance. I am glad to see this is changing as we are growing fast and having more resources

    Pros

    1. Exceptional leadership.
    2. Great track record of helping people secure their futures and protect their loved ones.
    3. Great ongoing training.
    4. Very supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    I have not encountered a negative in this company. The work is hard, absolutely. The work demands a total commitment in order to be successful. BUT: there are considerable rewards for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    This company has been around forever. It has consistently moved up the Fortune500 list and resides at #76 right now. I don't have any particular new nuggets of advice. I'd just suggest they keep doing what they're doing.
