Smart people & high performers though not always rewarded

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) McLean, VA

ProsVery smart people, Good locations to live (Richmond/McLean), Strong balance sheet (very little mortgage exposure from the crisis)

ConsEmployees work long hours for below average compensation especially for specialized finance/technical roles (one or the other probably needs to go). Senior/Mid-level management have very little traditional banking experience (and a tendency to try to reinvent the wheel)

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the compensation issue if you want to be able to retain or attract high caliber, experienced capital markets/banking talent. Recognize that sometimes you need experienced hires rather than trying to plug in 'smart' rising stars into businesses they have no experience with

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
