      Pros

      Great working environment, intelligent and supportive full-time analysts/associates and managers, good learning place for someone starting out in Credit. Everyone is willing to impart knowledge as long as you are willing to learn and take on more responsibilities.

      Cons

      Work can get operational at times due to how the teams are structured. Most bottlenecks happen due to technology issues which may take several weeks to resolve. This really impedes workflow and efficiency.
