bad pay, bad management, limited advancement at best, benefits are average, vacation is OK to start but after 5 years, you'll be waiting 10 years for another week off

Executive Assistant, Commercial Mortgage Financing (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 September 2012
I was fortunate to have been afforded opportunities to advance my knowledge as a Mortgage Administrator working for First National. I started out working in the accounting department as an Administrator for "Mortgage Backed Securities", advanced to the Commercial Lending Division in servicing and finished as the Executive Assistant for two Vice Presidents. The latter position was the one which I most enjoyed due mostly in part because of the team I worked with/for. Lot's of daily laughter makes for a very happy and productive workplace. Due to corporate restructuring my position became redundant. The farewell from my co-workers spoke volumes as to their level of respect for me. I made friendships that still flourish today.
Pros
always encourages personal and professional growth.
Cons
education is valued over experience
