You will learn a lot, work hard be well paid but have one hell of a time climbing the ladder.

Pros

Pay, bonus, exposure to banking and retail sectors, broad experience that should open doors for you elsewhere

Cons

Company hires outside more than in and promotions are rare. Doing a great job and being recognized for it does not equate to upward mobility.

Advice to Management

De-matrix and stir the pot up top.

    Pros

    + Definite opportunities for career advancement (both lattice & ladder). + Smart, talented people. + Great CEO and executive leadership team. + Attention to building diversity in workforce at all levels. + Global business experience opportunities.

    Cons

    - Locations for bigger offices on periphery of cities (i.e.; suburban) so transit to/from home in city is long and, at times, arduous. - Suffers middle-management "bloat" in some key areas, which hinders innovation and growth. - Some cronyism exhibited in certain areas, protecting "empty suits" instead of folks doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long, hard look at every member of your leadership team (all levels from Leader to Group Head). Determine the value they PERSONALLY add to what we make. Ask yourselves, is this person necessary? I think you'll find quite a few "empty suits" in middle management roles who have been promoted without a clear understanding of the value they bring to the company.

    Pros

    The employees are nice and approachable. Open door policy. Organizational culture emphasizes respect for one another and teamwork. Work not too difficult but not too easy either. Good balance between work and life.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. Work may become repetitive after a certain period of time. Workplace politics exists. Communication between departments can be improved.
