    Unorganized

    Vice President (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNice people that are easy to get along with. Very few "attitudes" and people are pleasant, even if they're not always happy.

    ConsSeems like departments work against each other. Got tired of hearing that client deliverables were being held up because another team didn't have the budget/prioritization to work on it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop cutting people and empower lower level employees to cut through the bureaucracy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you can make it here, you probably can make it anywhere.

    Director (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGlobal footprint is its unique differentiator. No other bank has its reach-- from people to products to platforms. Very fast-paced and bottomline-driven. Very unique to feel the world at your literal fingertips.

    ConsThe bank caters to the triple A -- the large multinational, the large government client, the high net worth individual. If the client isn't in this category, the client isn't valued. So big and complicated, it is prone to many broken pieces that need constant fixing. In many cases, the pressure to deliver on revenues is so high, products are not built properly. Hence, the amount of re-work, fire-fighting and managing client escalations is very high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the culture more. Compensate the good soldiers better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
