    Great Company to work for, would probably be more successful if so much time wasn't wasted on micro-micro management.

    Pros

    The company in general tries to promote employees from within. They offer a lot of opportunities to learn and grow as a person and employee.

    Cons

    Although I understand the need for some limited micro management, the practice has become a burden to many of the employees to the extent that it is using valuable time that could be put to much better use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off on some of the micro management.

    I worked at KeyBank

    Pros

    Nice people, good location, laid-back environment especially for finance. I recommend for students looking for internships or entry-level jobs.

    Cons

    Work can be slow, and you can be sitting around a lot waiting for work to come your way. Not many young people either.

    I worked at KeyBank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small deal teams within the non-industrial groups so lots of autonomy. The work life balance is excellent relative to other banks.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pitching vs active deals so you don't learn as much. In addition, there is a lot of beaurcracy if you are in Headquarters

    Co workers were great and helpful
