Remarkably enduring brand
Strong senior bankers dedicated to delivering for clients
Good cultural feel in individual industry groups

Persistently and demonstrably poor and inexperienced leadership, with a bewildering sense of entitlement
Lack of client engagement and accountability on part of senior management
Absence of vision and passion to win at helm
Very siloed structure with disincentives to cross industry teams and work as one firm

Have vision and exert leadership rather than reciting corporate platitudes as strategy.

    Pros

    Talented individual contributors. A great place to learn without the rewards.

    Cons

    Inept management, lacks talent across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay away from playing politics. Please compare yourself to your peers. Maybe you talked yourself in to a promotion. Ask yourself if you are really qualified for the job? If not, step aside.

    Doesn't Recommend
