Not a bad place to work, but you can probably do better somewhere else.

Pros

Large company with a lot of resources, including a very good research department and supportive fixed income desk. Most of the people are very professional and ethical, not a lot of office politics.

Cons

Very little genuine support from the retail bank, who receive very little financial incentive to support the investment group and no disincentive for not supporting it. Very limited opportunity to market outside of the bank, and the information systems are atrocious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Either the retail bank has to offer more genuine support, or the financial advisors need to be able to market more aggressively outside of the bank - something has to give! Also, sooner or later somebody in senior management is going to have to have the courage to admit that the current CRM system isn't really a CRM system at all and replace it.
