    Pros

    Benefits are great as compared to other companies i've worked

    Cons

    There is no room to advance to other groups in order to learn new skills...

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the talent you have in order to better the company it would help increasing salaries or bonuses to reflect the person's work. People can only take so much. Reward loyalty instead of taking advantage...

    Pros

    Good culture pre-merger, focused on commercial banking. Small branch within a large international bank. Good work/life balance, with opportunities to contribute. Cutting edge technology with top level colleagues.

    Cons

    Post-merger: continuous cost-cutting with continuous change of focus: first investment banking focus buildout, then cross-selling of IB products. Finally, just trying to stay afloat as a US $ center.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on strengths in US market, rather than trying to compete with the bigger IB banks.

    Pros

    Learning opportunities, great benefits, bonuses, telecommuting

    Cons

    too many jobs for one person, micromanagement, working with people that don't know what they're doing, pitiful bonuses and no raises in last couple of years, the limiting of telecommuting in recent months

    Advice to Management

    There are other jobs out there and your good employees are leaving you. You cannot expect to compete if you don't have good employees. Implement telecommuting again; why have you decided to go backwards?

    Pros

    I reported directly to Frankfurt so somewhat unique situation. hands off as long as deadlines were met

    Cons

    working for Frankfurt limited my options in the NY office, esp. as the head of the NY office resented that I didn't answer to him

    Advice to Management

    don't employ a "me too" strategy trying to emulate every other bank. focus on strenghts
