Pros
Cons
  • Opportunities outside of Cedar Rapids are slim (in 121 reviews)

  • I'd rather be an intern than full time as there doesn't seem to be much of a work/life balance once you're hired full time (in 22 reviews)

    Great learning experience, can figure out what you like to do in finance. managers are supportive of career path and are willing to help you

    Cons

    Can get put in some rotations that you might not like or are ridiculously hard because some of the programs havent been updated and people keep sending you all work no one wants to do. its entry level...and you will always feel that. you have to be ok with the fact that youre gonna live in iowa if you work out of CR office...
    great for family life, not so great for single young people

    Advice to Management

    my experience with management has been really good honestly. no complaints
