    Pros

    Great exposure to honing your skill set since lots of customer transactions. Bosses are highly experienced. Systems are becoming more computerized than manual. No shortage of manpower. Good trainings offered to everyone.

    Cons

    Low base pay. Computers and work tools takes long to materialize. Conservative culture. Seniority of bosses is highly regarded over performance. Promotion is granted to very few people (due to the bell curve).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New president is shaking things up with the lackluster senior management. Interesting to see how the bank will evolve in a few years.
