    Pros

    Free, catered lunch every day. Super smart people. Opportunity to learn a ton.

    Highly motivated people and high expectations. Not always a lot of direction, so best for people who are self starters and "have get it done" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to integrate the FW HQ more with the transaction/deal teams in SF.
