    Discrepencies in Salaries on same skills/experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of difference between salary offered. The base of the hike should be talent only. Rest is all good. A well managed company on accelerated growth path.

    Pros

    The company treats employees well and fairly. The company has an excellent reputation and I am proud to work here.

    Cons

    Typical negative of working for a very large corporation. You are unknown and not considered a part of the sucess of the company. Despite what management says.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally a good job, however lower level employees have little say or influence in how their job is done.

    Pros

    Lots of interaction with senior management. Great hourly rate for summer intern and 1500 dollar starting bonus

    Cons

    Its a hit or miss based on who your direct manager end up being. Sometimes you can have a great relationship with your direct manager and that'll in turn create an amazing experience. The other way around you will hate your job.

    Pros

    Culture is great. Everyone is willing to help the customer.

    Cons

    Constant changes. Leadership need to find a better way to roll changes out. Once a week meetings which were cancelled most of the time is not a effective way to discuss changes. Even a simple 5-10 minute meeting before shift would work better.

    Pros

    There are a lot of institutional resources that help employees learn skills on the job. Having a global platform also gives opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Work life balance is of no concern to managers
    Getting things done or having systems changed is hard with so much red tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're facing a talent exodus in your investment banking division. You need to implement work life balance improvements or young professionals will continue to prefer buy-side or tech-sector jobs.

    Pros

    They offer very nice benefits such as discounts on many stores and items, 401K, health and dental insurances. The company has many job opportunities depending on your career path. This company has a very good work and life balance.

    Cons

    Transitioning into a new role is a bit difficult and requires a lot of effort. You need approval on some ways you want to invest your own money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvement is needed in the training of new employees to understand the overview of the bank and how and the progression path of their career.
