Pros

- Pressure drives performance - DBS concept interesting intellectually at the beginning

Cons

- No training, no backoffice investment - Dogmatic approach "processes will drive success" - Redundant reporting without enough focus on core results - Not enough meritocracy: some senior posts will just be assigned rotationally or based on relationships. If you are not well connected you may work 80 hours weeks til you retire and not get anything.

Advice to Management

Make it a great place to work. Otherwise when the labor market improves you'll start losing key people

    Pros

    Recognition for results, fast paced, very good environment for driver personalities.

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain work life balance. Will take as much as you allow. You must have incredibly honed task management and prioritization skills to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Grow talent organically. There are a number of very talented employees with runway. Stop cycling MBA candidates with no experience through jobs they have no prior skills with. They're in the role just long enough to make a mess for others to clean up then they get promoted. It leads to poor morale among those who drive true accomplishments.

    Pros

    Results focus Profitable company DBS People

    Cons

    Focus on #'s at the expense of people politics (not everywhere - but getting worse) HR is becoming more powerful = more BS and less ability to move quickly

    Advice to Management

    Don't let all of the OP's talent leave - remember how we got to be this great of a company (DBS and great OP's guys!)
