    Pros

    Can't speak for all departments but, in IT my colleagues are talented, responsible and industrious, the work atmosphere positive and collegial, and the pay competitive.

    Cons

    No more than at any large corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Desktops are excessively locked down; no on-site support. Non-developers can't obtain needed utilities and/or update their software (like Acrobat!) without opening a ticket. Situation is expected to deteriorate further with planned administrative changes.

    Pros

    steep learning curve but it all depends on the team;
    passionate young people for the most part;
    exposure to various groups within operations across the globe;

    Cons

    unwillingness to invest in its people leading to a revolving door environment;
    lack of clear direction due to change in management every few years;
    few career path opportunities unless you have strong connections;
    not offering competitive pay;

    Advice to Management

    reconsider the business model; think strategically as the people make the company and bring the bank's success;

    Pros

    Bulge Bracket experience
    Good weather

    Cons

    Horrible compensation that is severly below market
    Poor Leadership
    Top heavy structure
    Junior staff (analysts and associates) are treated as disposible

    Advice to Management

    The jacksonville office needs new leadership that actually cares about junior staff. Recognize the value of junior staff as opposed to treating them as disposable. If a new ugrad or MBA is looking for BB experience, the exit opportunities are limited. You are better off waiting for another BB offer or doing a stint with a accounting firm and making the jump. I would not recommend accepting an offer here.

  9. Interesting work, lots of opportunities for someone who is ready to work hard.
