Former Employee - Operations Associate  in  San Francisco, CA

Pros

Depending on your department, you could find nice people spread throughout. The Eagle Cafe was an affordable lunch.

Cons

-It may be the nature of financial institutions, but I always got the impression that you could get stabbed in the back or thrown under the bus by many, many sources in the company.

-Serious separation of management from worker bees. You didn't know what was going to happen until it was happening.

-Relentless demands with few resources and severely outdated technology.

-Demands. Fire drills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage. Don't lock yourself away behind office doors and expect the ship to run smoothly without leadership

    Frustrating, they sold me a big story, but in the end, I can't actually do the job I was hired to do.

    Pros

    Very good company culture. No budgets. They are generous with salary, less so with benefits.

    Cons

    Parts of the organization are very conservative. Technology is stone-age. Doesn't move very fast.

    Pros

    get deals done quick. however you really need to work with the senior credit team, they are tough to crack and work with, it takes over 3 years to get in their "group"... and its never guaranteed to work.

    Cons

    its like working for the Italian mob youre either a made man or your a sitting duck ready to get whacked. They promise you the world but they never deliver on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support the people that help you thrive, don't forget about who keeps you on the top of the food chain.
