Pros

Good pay, good benefits, flexibility in terms of work-life balance.
People tend to be relaxed about their job - a bit too relaxed

Cons

Management doesn't really get it in terms of what it takes to be a competitive bank.
Very political - people who have been there for the longest have an advantage.
Does not seem to be a meritocracy - it is NOT true that the best ideas are encouraged
Extremely few are genuinely interested in doing what is right for the bank.
Plans of action are backwards: instead of first establishing the goals and then the way to get there, there is an undue focus on structure, meetings, processes, without a clear understanding of what the point is.
No willingness to cut deeply and eliminate excess jobs, but rather a slow and painful bleed - affects morale a lot.

Advice to Management

You could be doing the same job with 1 out of every 3 people, you just need to identify them and promote them.

    Pros

    It's a global platform - that's good.

    Cons

    Senior Management doesnt seem to have an idea of where to take the company and what actions are required to stay competitive. Unrealistic goals were set and no clear objectives were given for measuring performance.
