"The program far exceeded my expectations. I am thankful that senior management spent the time and effort to help foster my development, while fellow co-workers tirelessly worked to show me the ropes. I took advantage of hands-on opportunities: working on live deals, contributed to projects that represented the Bank, and created processes that made the Bank more efficient. I learned how the various pieces of the puzzle fit together and whenever any doubt existed, I knew exactly who to call.
