A blast, and something you would never guess
SALES AGENT, TRAINER, MANAGEMENT (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZNovember 18, 2014
This company took me to the moon and back. My knowledge of how to communicate in the world today grew exponentially daily. I traveled to every state imaginable and then some, also traveling outside of the U.S. I never paid for gas, insurance, paid very little for hotels, and met people from all over. There is a certain deviance from truth that arose – more... in the business daily, it made one question their very morals and what they were willing to do for money. But, overall I learned more about myself and the world through this company and all of its affiliates than I have in any other job or event in my life – less

Great Training Program
Client Services Representative (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMay 6, 2014
Pros: great training, great hours
Cons: would not sponsor my series 7 license, low pay, limited opportunity for growth
This was my start in the financial services industry. By far the best part of working at MFS was its three week training program. Not having any experience in the industry, this training still benefits me today. I started out as a contractor and was offered full time employment. After that time, I was also offered additional training for Retirment Services – more... and accounts. This training was also top notch. The only draw back to this position was the limited opportunities for growth. MFS would not sponsor me to get the Series 7. This and the relatively low compensation were the primary reasons I eventually left. – less

Good learning Experience
Intern/IT Dept (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 6, 2014
Created user guides and worked with IT to make online access fully functional. Assisted with any other needs of departments.

Learned how to utilize my computer experience and add to it.

Co-workers were very polite and helpful, particularly for me being an intern.

Hardest part was that occasionally there was not enough work. An 8 hour day for an intern – more... can seem long when there is nothing to do.

Most enjoyable was the location and learning more about a topic I prior had no knowledge. Also I enjoy technology so the computer work was interesting to me. – less

Desktop Design & Publishing Project Leader (Current Employee), Boston, MADecember 1, 2013
Pros: jeans day on fridays
Cons: too much managing up and not enough advocacy for the teams below
Great people and great benefits with a big focus on the work/life balance. I cherish the relationships I have made here over the years and appreciate the team-oriented environment that is fostered. One of the biggest challenges continues to be to trying to manage and meet the increasing production deadlines with limited resources available. Overall, – more... MFS is a great company where I feel I could flourish further in my career if opportunities were to be presented however I seem to have hit my maximum tenure here and without any new or exciting options to pursue, I am now taking my search outside of the firm. – less

Making deposits, processing refunds, reconciling vendors invoices, and scheduling payment of invoices.THe management in my area is excellent, always willing to ssist and teach.
