Being in the right division helps a lot. If you're in the right division, you sometimes get priority in getting what you want. Things are done much faster.


If you're in the wrong division, you'll probably feel de-prioritized and may feel that your group moves a little more slowly than you like.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more often. Make sure everyone understands the overall goals.

    * Entrepreneurial culture; very easy to suggest and implement new ideas
    * Lots of groups for networking that cater to a variety of interests
    * Easy to solicit advice from anyone across the org
    * Great for spreadsheet junkies and for anyone who wants to be
    * At its best, culture is collaborative and nurturing


    * You'll only have the power to make marginal changes, at best
    * "Work-for-the-weekend" culture; nobody actually cares about finance or the markets
    * Work is intense, detail-oriented, fast-paced but ultimately not very intellectually stimulating and doesn't promote much skills growth; on your worst days, you'll feel like a sweatshop worker
    * Unspoken pressure to not take lunches and the be chained to your desk all day
    * At its worst, the culture is male-dominated, sports-centric, all-balls-and-no-brains and homophobic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Pay people more than the bare minimum you have to; you'll get better staff and less turnover
    * Foster inclusiveness; actively discourage the promotion of "bros"
    * "Lean" is not a buzzword you can use to hire one employee to do the work of two for half the pay
