    Pros

    The culture facilitates work/life balance, encourages younger employees to work with senior management, and fosters improvement.

    Cons

    Systems and other technology can sometimes be dated. Many inefficiencies exist because of bureaucracy related to the US being a subsidiary of the London-based bank.

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities for advancement throughout the company. Many of the opportunities can be within other departments or other global positions the company has around the world.

    Cons

    The majority of opportunities for advancement means you will have to go outside the current department you're working in. Otherwise you can easily do the same position for the rest of your career at this employer.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for hard working, dedicated workers who make a difference for the company.

    Pros

    Global banking organization with opportunities for secondments and advancement. During my time with the organization (7+ years), the company "owned" its issues and seemed to attempt to deal with its problems.

    Cons

    The US operations still appears to be a group of separate businesses (with "us" and "them" attitudes) so even at a country-level it felt like working for different companies.
