    Pros

    Career growth opportunities, Interaction with Senior Management, relaxed atmosphere and work life balance!

    Cons

    A bit bureaucratic when things need to be done, but expected out of a company with 100+ years of experience and risk management.
    May not be as aggressive as certain other companies in the market.

    Pros

    Global Franchise. Growing Office. Opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Staff is overwhelmingly comprised of recent grads.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in bringing talented people to this office. Need to move senior managers to Getzville Site. Not appropriate that site of 1,800 people does not have one MD.
