    Pros

    Good pay Decent work hours Good work life balance

    Cons

    Poorly managed place in the controlling side. Senior management is clueless in the controlling side so there is no motivation for anyone to excel. Worse they are transitioning jobs in controlling to Canada. So beware before joining here. Layoffs even though the bank is making money. Layoffs even for folks rated outstanding. Not because the bank is not making money. But because Toronto is cheaper. Problem I see folks in Toronto can't compete with folks in Wall Street. Management doesn't see that way though. Hope the us government makes them aware that there is a cost of doing business in us.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire good people in controlling from top banks here in the capital markets space after doing a proper peer review. Hire controllers in controlling not management reporting folks who has no clue what controlling is about. Please treat your employees in New York as an investment and not as head counts.

    Pros

    Company pays well and has a good reputation.

    Cons

    They are obsessed with appearances, and really don't care about the quality of your work. For example, if you are at your desk at 7am and you don't get any work done, you are fine. If you come in at 9am and get all your work done, you will be berated for not being in earlier

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring the "popular kids" and hire people who know what they are doing.
