Good first job after college but no real career advancement.
Pros: free breakfast snacks on mondays & fridays, flexible hours & good work/life balance.
Cons: no career advancement, pay is low relative to job responsibilities, pay is low compared to average research associate salary & high turnover.
A good job after college to get your toes wet in the financial services industry. My coworkers in the department are those who finished school within the last four years and therefore I was able relate to them. My direct managers were very helpful. However, being able to advance your career in the department and the company is hard to do; it will take you awhile to get anywhere and the pay is low relative to the job responsibilities. Thus, turnover is high in my department and I don't know if changes will be made anytime soon to combat this issue.
