    Going through lots of change

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsParent company is a great brand and good company overall to work for. Very large and global institution so there are opportunities to interact with lots of people from all walks of life.

    ConsWith so much change in the last several years, the business has been a hard place to work. I never truly felt like we were on an up swing during my time there. Leadership during this time was largely people who grew up in investment banking which made it frustrating at times. The business went through a potential sale and finally an internal merger with the wealth management business a couple years back and has a short timeline to turn the businesses around. Morale was low and fear was high when I was there. The business was very top heavy and cliquish which made it difficult for what little junior talent we had left to move up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more junior and mid level talent and stop giving your Directors and MD's "head of blah blah blah" titles. It actually is not that impressive to the clients I worked with.

    Friendly but many senior managers don't know the business or solicit feedback

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are friendly, most people's hours seem manageable, offices in midtown Manhattan are nice

    ConsPay is weak, IT infrastructure and helpdesk are increasingly obsolete, management from CIB very arrogant and doesn't know the business

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to staff & clients rather than making unrealistic proclamations. Reward producers

    Great internship program
