I started there when it was a very small firm and when it became part of a very large firm, we managed to maintain our closeness as a unit. It was a great group of co-workers with a high level professionalism and a strong work ethic. Management was always open to discussions and new ideas. I learned a lot about the investment world through working on marketing projects and talking to managers. There wasn't really a hardest part of the job; perhaps "last minute changes" to presentations, but even that wasn't a big deal. Most enjoyable had to be the people.
Good location for commuting, near everything downtown
