    Great if you like working in a big bank, but you better be good at office politics

    Investment Banking Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsEnormous scale, #1 in most business lines, ability to make a big impact. Prestigious brand that has gotten more valuable with time.

    ConsEnormous Scale - a lot of layers of hierarchy, very low churn at the top of the pyramid - hard to rise up beyond a certain level. Very political as you have to not only have the best ideas but also be the best at claiming credit for their execution.

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

    Great environment, poor management

    Bank Teller (Former Employee) Richards, TX

    ProsI loved who I worked with, where I worked and what I did. I received a "promotion" after a year and a half of working there and was super excited. Average pay, learned a lot!

    ConsThe management at the new job was the worst I got fired after only working one month for being late. They considered me being sick and then coming in late the next day and getting sent home from being too sick as "excessive tardies".

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick your managers better, hard working employees shouldn't be penalized for the horrible managers.

    Good experience, enjoyed my team

    Summer Technology Analyst (Current Employee) Wilmington, DE

    ProsReally enjoyed my team, they are all great people. I also could not have asked for a better hourly rate as a sophomore, I don't know any of my friends at other companies being paid more for our year. Enjoyed getting some real business/project management experience at a company that looks fantastic on the resume.

    ConsIt was a pretty slow onboarding and spent the first week getting set up, but I guess that is to be expected at a large firm. Not too many cons, but just not something I want to do personally out of school, more interested in consulting.

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep up the revamping of office spaces...shorter cubicles, etc
