    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that they show you how to progress from admissions to anywhere else in the company. Based on my experience here I was able to land great management roles.

    Cons

    There is some stress but that goes along with any job that has high expectations. I really believe at this company you get out what you put in. You have to be willing to take coaching and advice and that can be a negative for some people.
