Pros

The benefits package is heads and tails above most other industries. The MRP, although limited in investment options, is 15 percent of eligible compensation without the associate making any contribution.

Cons

Senior management loves to create sub-committees that discuss over and over again a variety of opportunities and challenges. The company is slow to make decisions and implementation is not a strong suit. Information is not disseminated in a timely manner to other team members.

Advice to Management

Considering the low morale created from the previous layoffs, management may want to consider being more open about ongoing discussions for changes or enhancements.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits - bar none!
    Decent work/life balance
    Some great people
    Decent communication

    Cons

    Leadership has lost the long term view the company was founded on
    Jobs are narrow. If you are a senior level manager coming from somewhere else, you will lose some of your skill set. CG tends to structure jobs with narrow responsibilities that run deep but are less broad.
    Due to low turnover - advancement opportunities are limited for most

    Advice to Management

    Conduct 360 feedback reviews for leadership - a lot of leaders "manage up" very well - but are not strong leaders down the chain...The incentives can keep senior managers complacent in their performance..

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty outstanding (one of the best I've seen) and they advertise their "total" compensation package as being very generous. This is true when you consider that they multiply your salary by 15% and drop that into a pension account for you and let it grow in their mutual funds. People are pretty nice for the most part and offices are updated. Upper management is easy to talk to and usually willing to listen. Opportunity for advancement is there and definitely supported by upper management.

    Cons

    Things take very long to take place. Since it's a financial institution, projects and such move at a slower pace... to ensure that security is not breached and that no application breaks. Don't expect things to happen overnight. And don't expect to advance as quickly as you'd like although the opportunities are there.

    Advice to Management

    Involve your fellow teammates more in your decision making process. Enlist some representatives of every class and make a sort of senate committee to ensure that voices will be heard when thinking of implementing new ideas or changes.
