Financial Specialist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Financial Specialist?

Financial Specialist in Madison:
"Great city...but so cold in winter."
Pros: I love that I get to work in the middle of it all. There is a farmer's market in the summer right outside my building's door. There are cultural events taking place during the week up on the capitol and over on the terrace. It is a great place to go to work!
Cons: It is super hard to find free parking. I sacrificed the ability to enjoy the cultural events in town, in order to free up an hour of my life finding parking. Now I carpool and save time and money! Sometimes the events can disrupt an otherwise normal commute. The carpool leaves earlier so we often get to miss the crazy traffic.
