    If it hadn't been for me starting at the bank 4 years ago I wouldn't be where I am today (Mortgage consultant)

    Cons

    Challenging but very worthwhile, depending on your role some more training would be useful...
    Target driven environment has been disposed of which is a bit of a shame, now the targets are on the backburner....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you started somewhere once and sometimes someone not hitting target isn't their fault.
