Fascinating place to work; good work-life balance; but industry under siege

Pros

Work life balance; fascinating issues at crux of financial system; culture is relatively collegial.

Cons

Pay is mediocre for financial industry; career advancement is stalled.

Advice to Management

Work on conflicts inherent in business model. Lay off the intense, recent focus on "process"; it's killing the geese that lay the golden eggs.

    Pros

    Upper management is very engaged with the line of business. Employee development is strongly possible for hard workers. Hard work is valued.

    Cons

    Some teams are glorified, paying better than other teams.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Great stable, profitable company (rare today) but an extremely consensus driven organization, that has to work for you..

    Pros

    Great stable, profitable company (rare today). good place for someone right out of school. Opportunity to learn about deals/transactions at a less than banking hours, but you get less than banking pay (in exchange for stability).

    Cons

    Within CFG, extremely consensus driven organization, no room for creativity or original thinking. You get ahead via "special projects" without that, you'll need to work 2-3x as much or and your promotions will take 2-3x as long. It doesn't matter if the companies you cover are high volume, busy companies, you won't get any points for staying on top of them without the "special projects"

    Advice to Management

    better, more equitable, transparent incentive structures. There are some people there that just want to coast, that kills morale, that only further speaks to the inequity of the place and ruins the reputation of the firm to outsiders.
