Inflated Titles and Lack of Consistency Across Groups

Former Employee - AVP, Internal Audit
Former Employee - AVP, Internal Audit
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Most people were good people which made the environment nicer. The salary and benefits were in line with similar jobs both in the banking industry and outside.

Cons

Lack of direction by upper internal audit management. Huge disparity between groups within internal audit from everything to quality of deliverables to time off. The department was very top heavy with lots of elevated titles for people who were doing administrative tasks.

Advice to Management

Maybe if all internal audit groups were held to the same standard, some of the things that caused the collapse may have been uncovered sooner.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Met some nice co-workers that I've remained friends with.

    Cons

    Worked Holidays and never received doubletime. We were paid hourly. Management would tell you you could take a day off another time to make up for the extra day. It was a payroll nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    The only people that made money here were people in top management; otherwise, you are used for the most part.


  2. Bloated middle management layer

    Former Employee - Assistant Vice President
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    laid back environment in some offices,

    Cons

    Some offices are like cattle farms, there are too many VPs, SVPs and other middle managers, many of whom don't even have anyone reporting to them

    Advice to Management

    improve quality of work environment for lower level workers (below SVP level).
