Large pool of long tenured, average employees makes it a professionally stifling place to work.

Pros

A few of the positives include low levels of bureaucracy, generally friendly employees, and competitive salaries.

Cons

Key downsides include poor senior leadership, lack of accountability, and little diversity among the employee base.

Advice to Management

Poor recent strategic decision making (in both the US and Asia), slow response to changing dynamic of marketplace, and terrible employee morale indicates serious senior management shake-up is needed as it suggests that management either does not know or care about the serious challenges threatening the firm from both inside and outside. It is tough to say which is worse, but the sad reality is that neither is getting addressed appropriately.

    Pros

    Provided with a great summer internship experience that I would argue was one of the best exposures to the financial world

    Cons

    I wasn't too happy with how little communication there was internally... seemed like you only really interacted with the people you directly worked for

    Advice to Management

    the only thing i would advise the management on is making sure that everyone knows who is new (even interns)
