Good company for someone really wants a life/work balance. Not for ambitious and entrepreneur

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGenerally good working environment as most employees are friendly. Good company benefits including defined benefit pension (though very low), good vacation time, work/life balance.

ConsIt really depends on what your job function is and which team you are in. Middle and back offices normally have good hours though relatively low pay. Front office has relatively less stress compared to top tier american investment bankers but it also shows in the pay check + bonuses. Huge turnover rates as it has hard time to retain the best performers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf your strategy is to expand in the US, you have to be ready to pay the $$$ to attact talents.
