    the good company to work

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    Prospeople are nice and environment is dynamic and active. During the last few years with Bear Stearns, I met a lot of great people there. As a number 5th investment bank firm (of couse it is the history), the long history of the firm brought me into the world of trading US investment bank environment. I was working in Security Transaction department and be responsible to equity trading. Different from other investment banks I worked, here they worked in the way of relationship first approach and I am not the right person to comment if it is a good approach as there is no chance to change and test it for differnece. But I loved the enviroment indeed to work out the business in friendship and brotherhood.

    Consless organized and with more ad-ho issues to handle

    Advice to Senior Managementpay more attension to the middle level staff growth

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    No longer exists, what else can be said?

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsVery hands off. Allowed you to work independantly and treated you as an asset. Had a good corporate culture there.

    ConsOther than the fact it went bankrupt? It seemed to be the lesser of it's peers. It was driven by one business and when that failed, it did too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should have diversified the business ventures to which it allocated capital. There also should have been a better recruitment program
