    Pros

    International Bank
    Prospects and Opportunities
    Positive perception of the brand
    Good work- life balance

    Cons

    "Folow-the-rules ONLY!" environment
    No challenge at all.
    Ultra-Conservatism and no change (department was working at called "Change Delivery" but there was no change at all - just follow the rules).
    Still are using MS Office 2003.
    Creativity and out of box thinking by not means are welcomed - just follow the rules
    Ultra-Bureaucracy and huge paper work (although physical papare is minimum but bureaucratic documentation and procedures are tremendous).
    Although "openness" is one of the values, there is no openness at all -recent Mexican hazard as a prove
    Cost saving via job cut is normal, no ethical issues are considered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ultra-Bureaucracy and conservatism is advocated for safety, security and reputational reasons, but recent Mexican hazard showed that management needs REALLY be OPEN and transparent, not just declare it.
