    Pros

    Intelligent people, open minded attitude. Accessible management at MD level. Flexible and honest HR people. Good networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Technology support is sub standard leading to a lot of menial admin work.

    Cut throat culture. A lot of the management are poached from other firms purely on the basis of compensation without looking at cultural fit or forming a team. High turnover.

  2. The company was fine. The problem was its strategy.

    Pros

    The environment was fine. It enhanced creativeness.

    Cons

    They suddenly changed their strategy due to the LIBOR scandal.

    Advice to Management

    They should have a clearer strategy and more communication so that employees get to know better how to climb up the corporate ladder.
