Lions led by donkeys

Vice-President, Technology (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsGood team atmosphere - young and enthusiastic, always up for drinks, fun runs etc. Excited about the potential to improve the business with new technology.
Good training website "Merrill Lynch University" even if external courses were hard to get funded.
Matched giving to charity - you can easily fundraise with a whipround the office.

ConsTechnology department seen as a backwater by front office staff.
Pressure to outsource roles to Asia.
Budget cuts after large losses in the business that we had no control over.
Hours spent on voice-conference with Americans late in the afternoon. Many of whom you'd never met and who rarely listened to opinions from outside their world.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest about losses in the business and likely changes that will affect staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
