Pros

Good for people interested in learning about finance domain. Good payouts, specially if firm is doing well. Great employee benefits, flexibility etc.

Cons

I have seen lot of politics getting played between regions (NY vs BGL, LDN vs BGL etc). Also- your manager is like God for you (your career, your pay increments etc). Most bangalore-based teams end up playing support role for prod applications.

Advice to Management

Encourage people to move between various teams (internal mobility) instead of letting them stay in one team forever.

    Smart people
    More responsibility at management level

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, everyone has a very high opinion of themselves and often get caught in the 'IB bubble'.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bonuses in line with other BBs or you'll see retention rates dropping...
