    AVP/Associate/Officer--Commercial Bank

    Officer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat work environment. Flexibility to work remotely if necessary. Not a lot of micro-managing, despite the many layers of leadership. Lots of areas for growth and movement if you're in the right Line of Business (LoB). The is a REAL sense of commitment to diversity. They encourage volunteering and being a part of business resource groups. If you want to advance you have to get out and meet people. There's lot of opportunity but you have to be pro-active. All the people that know people move on and up often.

    ConsLot os managers, and managers managers. Not a lot of transparency with pay grades, bonuses, and what goes into that. Can be confusing to navigate if you're a new hire and trying to determine total compensation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a back company to be merged in with

    Senior Solution Architect (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsReasonable hours, work life balance, the people are nice.

    ConsThings are hard to accomplish owing to the scale. The infrastructure teams are huge and specialized. Coordinating activity across groups is a challenge since resources are otherwise occupied. Central planning is lacks and initiatives are driven by fiat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVirtual teams would be a start. So would instilling a culture of risk taking.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
