    Pros

    Open minded culture and great welfare. Very intellectually stimulating. Management has an open door policy, which encourages learning.

    Cons

    During down time, there would be no work. needs to balance work flow better, so that there won't scenarios whereby there are tons of work and lack thereof subsequently.

    Advice to Management

    Be more responsive and aware of the views of entry-level employees,This will allow management to make the necessary adjustments to culture and provide better products to clients.

    Pros

    A bank that builds strong base for future managers and leaders. Provides International exposures to different cultures and practices. Recommended

    Cons

    There were hardly any cons and if any issues the management considered employees feedback seriously. However, compensation and benefits needs to be streamlined across the board.
