    Pros

    Good pay, people are relatively friendly to work with, not as beaureucratic as other IBs I've worked in

    Cons

    No staff benefits - i.e. no teabags or milk! everyone has to keep stashes of teabags, sugar, salt, pepper in their drawers, it's ridiculous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little things like some snacks or employees benefits like team events make people happier when you don't give them bonuses
