    Pros

    Great company that provides incredible benefits and bonus structure. The FinTech space is very interesting and constantly changing so you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Needs more openings for younger employees. Too many people are at mid management level unnecessarily. Use that money to create more associate and analyst level positions.
