Start re-numerating key employees. Listen to staff concerns more.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Much exposure to all aspects of financial markets, you get to understand different banking processes. Very interesting to understand how data is transmitted around the bank and the possibilities offered by a trading system like Wall Street. A great overall experience, and colleagues are usually ready to assist you... there is a wealth of knowledge among the business analysts who do the hard job of facing the client.

    Cons

    (Un?)-official management push for those consultants who are not technical to become technical: this can be a pain if you have no inclination to do the techies' job but it is quite interesting... to a point. Many developers and techies are overworked and they can be very quickly irritated for no apparent reason. Work done by development is sometimes amazingly shoddy, which means that work is sent back for re-work.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency for all employees, give them the opportunity to do varied work. If you want to keep the bright people then give them something to work towards, like career progression or a professional qualification, and offer study support. Be honest about what you expect from each employee, both techie and non-techie alike: cut the management BS.
