      Not Very Structured

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You definitely have a lot of freedom compared to most firms, my boss is incredible, culture is very friendly and has an open atmosphere.

      Cons

      If you are a person who requires a structured workspace you are going to absolutely hate it here. The training program is literally non existent. There is no training. You’re thrown in there and basically gotta figure out how to be good at your job. Those who do well get paid & those who don’t won’t succeed. I personally prefer this as opposed to having every single action & interaction dictated by a large bureaucratic corporate management structure, but it is definitely not for everyone.

      Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?
