The Cons outnumber the Pros, but the Pros outweigh the Cons. Barely. Difficult in NY. Better in other centers.

Pros

Emerging markets focus is compelling and lucrative. Fiscally healthy. Weathered the recession quite well. Compensation can be very good depending on the position. Benefits package is excellent: $60/mo. employer contribution for transit, FSA, Comprehensive Medical/Dental, with domestic partner coverage, generous paid leave, 3 volunteer days/year, paid training, 4% 401(k) employer match, pension.

Cons

Lost opportunity to capitalize on weakness of bigger banks during downturn. Limited growth potential in NY... advancement usually requires relocation to target markets (Asia, Africa, Middle East). Terrible trading/risk management systems. Strategy from senior management is muddled. IT investment is well below the market standard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in IT. Decentralize management away from Singapore. Leverage US resources more. Hold to your strategy and present it more clearly and frequently.

    Pros

    Great people at work and at play - numerous ocassions to interact at work as well as socialize outside of the job. Concertered effort to train and offer support when required.

    Cons

    Internal information technology is under staffed or not prompt to reply or to fix isses especially in the most critical time of the month when deadlines need to be met

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of an attempt should be made to encourage/train or direct personnel who are in the middle of their careers....a lot of emphasis is on either new graduates or candidates with twenty plus years of service
