    Good experience, slow moving internally

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are great to work with, everyone is willing to give career or business advice. Very conservative atmosphere keeps the workplace professional. Fast-paced industry provides a lot of different opportunities.

    ConsExtremely slow moving with promotions, senior leadership has zero work-life balance but a lot of managers and directors fight for it for their teams. Very behind in technology for employees, investing in the wrong places - extremely externally focused with spending.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote work-life balance, invest in employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
