"Pay Your Dues."
Financial Analyst:
No one is willing to pay their dues. Learn from the best even if it means a lower paycheck. Experience will trump education later in life. If you can work directly for a good leader it will pay dividends for you the rest of your life.

"Financial Analyst."
Financial Analyst:
Pros: Broader knowledge, experience.
Cons: Overtime.
July 2014
"Work More. For Less. Much Less. The Company Calls It "Fun""
Financial Analyst:
Pros: Doing what I'm very good at doing (data analysis: financial modeling development), working with very good people (who are also VERY underpaid for what they do for the company)
Cons: Severely underpaid, but get to do what I love to do (for the first time in my life). Is that a "fair trade-off"?
July 2014
"Overall It Is A Good Experience."
Financial Analyst:
Pros: Work culture and good work life balance.
Cons: Rigidness in terms of technology changes.
August 2014
"Work Life Balance Achieved."
Financial Analyst:
Pros: Interesting work, laid back environment, flexible work times, good hourly pay, no stress, friendly colleagues.
Cons: My boss can sometimes be a bit ambiguous when it comes to giving me instructions. My boss can be sometimes temperamental and demands things urgently without pre-warning.
