    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at KBC Financial Products USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, lots of opportunity to show your stuff and shine, supportive upper management (at least within IT), not a lot of bureaucracy that you would get at a larger organization.

    Cons

    Not a huge focus on formal training - you are expected to learn as you go (which can also be a positive). Some of the lack of bureaucracy could be maddening at times, though that is the challenge, to find the sweet spot.

    Advice to Management

    With 20/20 hindsight, I would recommend to management not to get involved in CDOs!


  2. Remarkable people – personal career highlight

    I worked at KBC Financial Products USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High level of responsibility and opportunities for advancement earlier in your career. Flat management structure, casual environment and strong camaraderie.

    Cons

    The only con is that the company dissolved its business in New York but the relationships among KBC former employees are still quite strong and remain close friends.


  3. Great people, a bit too relaxed

    Pros

    -Excellent group of people and a low stress working environment. -Strong Compensation with excellent benefits

    Cons

    -A bit too relaxed IT structure, which can cause projects to take longer than necessary. -Tendency to ever-engineer a solution, essentially reinventing the wheel in some cases, -Relies to much on emails to discuss complex ideas, rather than face to face (or video conference) meetings

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the laid back environment, but a little rigidity doesn't hurt now and again.
