    Pros

    The firm is on it's way to reinvent itself. Senior managers are putting innovation as the primary target for everyone within the firm. On the technology end, you'll notice themes such as mobile, social media on the forefront of every town hall. Definitely a great place to challenge the status quo.

    Cons

    While trying to catch up to other firms, there's always the dreaded "legacy systems" everyone has to deal with. Also since it is a bank, regulator scrutiny is constant. Making everything processes heavy.

    Pros

    Global bank with top five market share. Quality environment with high achieving employees. Infrastructure focus with up to date technologies to keep competitive.

    Cons

    There are undesired redundancies in functions as well as personnel due to the size of the bank. This has created inefficiencies which stunt synergies. This limits the company's ability to remain agile and adapt to an ever changing market environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent should be nurtured and grown from within, with the hope that this will instill a sense of ownership and pride for employees that climb in seniority which will be passed on by them to their own staff.
