    Pros

    Clear focus on Asia Africa and middle east markets Over all product offering and capability is just as good if not better than most top tier banks Often compared to HSBC, much smaller bank, but better global capabilities Good risk management

    Cons

    Limited presence in the US The bank's strategy can get in the way of good business, ie the bank may turn away business that does not have an large international component Internal politics can be very active Bank has a lower profile in the US

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities were great and the bank encourages you to spend time overseas so there can be a lot of travel or short/long term assignments abroad.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't seem to know what the next steps are. There has been a shakeup throughout the bank and I saw lots of good people leave on the back of it who knew the bank well.
