    I have been working at Assante Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The Assante leadership team is very collaborative to work with and have a clear vision of where the company is going. The new president Sean Etherington and COO Bob Dorrell have also really stepped up their internal communication strategy which provides more transparency.

    Cons

    It's part of a larger organization which means resourcing can sometimes be a challenge. Having said that it has also been very beneficial to have that scale.
