    Smart people, good benefits. Good horizontal mobility. They take good care of you when you travel.


    Gender discrimination against women - I was paid $100k less then my male counterpart for same exact job. Regulatory environment killed all sense of entrepreneurship.

    Advice to Management

    Create system and rewards for entrepreneurial activity within the firm. Assess gender discrimination in salaries.
