Pros

People are hard-working and smart.
Great place to learn a thing or two from more senior people.
Lean organization, so lots of responsibilities given to junior guys.

Cons

Culture is not great. Hours are bad.
Technology is HORRIBLE. The Traders are awesome at what they do, Salespeople are awesome at what they do. But someone please fix the technology. The technology becomes so problematically bad such that the junior traders become way too preoccupied in fixing stuff during the day when the market is moving around. The mishaps in technology seriously cost many traders money.

Advice to Management

Hire better technology people. Actually, hire more tech people. Treat the tech people better.

    Pros

    It is a large public company with a strong balance sheet and the investment bank generates interesting work. It is a good place to learn the financial services industry with good resources.

    Cons

    The hours, like any other bank are grueling and recognition from senior bankers is low for a junior banker. Career opportunities are bountiful afterwards, but more direct guidance from senior bankers would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Retain good talent by promoting and compensating hard workers.
