    Pros

    Some interesting coworkers, minimal supervision, no micromanagers, heart of SF financial district, $ toward your commute expenses.

    Cons

    Silly office party after office party to celebrate birthdays, new account acquisitions, weddings, sports wins, upcoming vacations, colleague transfers etc. absolutely began to hate them because they were constantly interfering with getting my work done. Lots of heavy drinkers. Nit picky about an intern's monitor being 1 inch larger than paid employee's. Nepotism. Unfair Favoriticism.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders need to be more mature and possess a strong work ethic.
