Great to start, Hard to stay

Banker Associate (Current Employee)

ProsGood place to learn alot about the industry, and there is "ok" ability to move across different business groups depending on availability, luck, who you know, or better yet all three. Able to work with some really smart and dedicated colleagues. Global brand recognition, footprint, and training is good in certain business groups while others just throw you to the wolves.

ConsRegulatory aspect is getting worse as the years go by, big government impedes the ability to do business well and it is affecting the whole industry. Micro-management is prevalent in some businesses. Some colleagues are amazing, others just don't care, and still others used to care but don't anymore. Massive layoffs the past few years have been terrible for morale. There's an underlying feeling that some of the goals in certain businesses are purposefully inflated so few can meet goal, let alone exceed goal, so then bonuses won't have to be paid. I've heard this from veteran sales people who were very successful for many years, but are suddenly "not making goal" anymore and placed on final notice. Very discouraging, and even for the sales people who are doing well in this environment their morale is low too. Strangely, there are also some people who do very little and get away with high compensation and outright laziness. Absolutely confounding.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
