    Overall, good place to work on Wall Street

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- Highly entrepreneurial
    - Challenging/interesting work
    - Good salary and benefits

    Cons- Highly political environment: pick mentor(s) who are well-regarded and know their way around the organization
    - Highly bureaucratic environment: need to go through a lot of hoops to get things done/approved; only gotten worse with onset of external regulatory forces (a lot tougher to get things done)
    - Sharp elbows among colleagues: at the end of the day, everyone is out for themselves and wanting to maximize their comp at year-end.
    (I should note that the above all all pretty common to most, if not all, investment banks)
