    I worked at SPX full-time

    Pros

    Decentralized environment which provides lots of independence and ability to grow. Great leadership programs for first year grads, mid-level management and executive management. Fast paced and aggressive.

    Cons

    Not a lot of processes unless you build the process. This is good if you have self direction and can lead without guidance. Not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Do not drop the leadership programs, this is a valuable tool and attractive to new talent.

    Pros

    Great work environment with a lot of knowledgeable people to learn from and exchange ideas

    not a ton to do. Lots of repetitive work including running models and simple data pulls using HFM. They only take 4 per year.

    Keep rolling and this company is a great one to work for. The management team is top tier and should be a highly regarded place to work!
