      Pros

      Great atmosphere within the team I was tasked to. Their ability to show me the ropes in almost every aspect of their jobs was outstanding. Also was given daily responsibilities that impacted the entire Finance department, so my work felt really valuable.

      Cons

      At times work got redundant, but all you have to do is ask for more responsibility and they will give it to you.
