    Pros

    They have some great benefits. There are many opportunities for growth throughout the company...in various parts of the US and around the world.

    Cons

    Except for some very restrictive cases, one would lose all unused PTO by the end of the fiscal year. It's not the worst thing in the world, but there is not much that I could find wrong with the company as an employer.

    Pros

    Management is dedicated to supporting your career development. Work hard play hard environment. Reasonable in terms of expectations, and flexible as long as you are meeting those expectations. Exposure to many technologies and industries.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic in some areas. But that has a positive side: it is better having a system in place, as you know what to expect and what your responsibilities are. Also, as a provider of Financial Services, this is normal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Opportunities everywhere in the business. You need to make it happen yourself though. Look for a supportive manager or speak with HR to map out options for career development, or perhaps a secondment in another department.
    The open office environment takes a little getting used to, but is generally a good thing that fosters interaction and tries to break down the walls of siloed businesses.

    Cons

    While the remuneration is okay, it's often not quite at market rates. However, there is a balance as the work environment is fairly relaxed, supportive and professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get amongst the 'little people' more and talk directly to them - not only via email or middle managers. Senior management's face amongst the teams does wonders to encourage enthusiasm and lets the staff see that management acknowledges their efforts.
