Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Prosstrong in fixed income, up and coming for equity business, generally well received on Wall Street

Constoo English, despite all the outward emphasis and noise on diversity, very little is actually done internally to promote female and/or minority talents, it has a great maternity program, but in terms of career advancement for females and minority, they are way behind most banks

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
