Systems have a lot of issues. Work has been slow due to euro crisis. Not recommended for entry level analysts who want a fast paced environment with deadlines.

    promotions based on considerations other than competence
    not friendly management environment for women.

    Advice to Management

    it's ok to have to downsize the us footprint, it's ok to have to cut headcount, but it's very unfortunate when you push out the smart people and promote the mediocre. what i've seen happen over the last year is smart people leave for other companies (Credit Suisse, Bank of America) or retire. Especially bad place for women. Since Diony Lebot left (first woman CEO in the US), it's gotten much worse. more than 100 people have left since the last round of layoffs and most of them are female because the work environment is so poor.
