A great place to learn and grow, but not always the best pay and career advancement opportunities.

Pros

A good place to learn the business of financial services, particularly from an operational standpoint. Lots of different areas of opportunities due to the size of the bank.

Cons

The pay is sub-par. Career advancement can be difficult in some areas. To advance in your career you have to be very selective in which part of the firm you work and willing to change locations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on making changes that will improve the level of confidence in our clients and employees. The steps made within recent months to regain the trust of the public need to be continued.

    Pros

    The company is well capitalized to sustain through the downturn and provides good opportunities for learning and advancement. There is generally a good level of management support for internal advancement and tools to help increase one's knowledge base. Managers are generally good about work and life balance with some tools for tele-working. A good place to work that recognizes contribution and talent.

    Cons

    obviously the financial markets are going through a bit of turmoil though the firm is probably in better position than others. Morale across the industry is low, but likely not specific to the firm (on a relative basis, morale isn't that bad). some beuaracracy as is typical of any big companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep an environment of less management to let creativity flourish.

    Open your eyes.
