I worked at USAA as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Interesting team based work
Got to meet with lots of senior management

Cons

Could tell our work wasn't really needed. They were more or less scouting out our talent to see if they wanted to recruit us.
Very conservative company.
Even if you work super hard you won't be promoted much faster than anyone else

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part, keep doing what you're doing, but also recognize how quickly technology is changing the way people work. Invest more in the technology you put on employees' desks and in their pockets.
