This is a solid conservative company with great benefits. Like any other large corporation your division and manager can make or break the experience. I found that most people in the company were willing to help you on projects even if they had never met you before. I was impressed with how well different divisions worked together considering how large the company is. I think it was as good as it could be given all of the unavoidable cons.
Like any corporation they are very process oriented and centralized. It can take a long time to get things done because of the bureaucracy to be dealt with. It can be difficult to break out of your current job role to try new things. Being a financial services company they are focused on security and they are highly regulated. This adds to the bureaucratic sluggishness.
Advice to Management
I was very impressed with the upper level management and my front line managers. It seemed to me that most of middle management was interested in maneuvering for their next promotion by impressing the upper management. I often thought that middle management was involved in checking the boxes on some yearly goat sheet to impress upper management rather than caring for their staff.
