Stable in Geneva but not so in Asia

Front Office (Current Employee)
Geneva (Switzerland)

I have been working at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAs a Swiss private bank, pays better than other European PBs. Employees in Europe tend to like the work life balance and stability there, and stay in the firm for 10-20 years.

ConsStick to the European offices and avoid Asia where change has been the culture. Very unsettling for the last 5 to 8 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome managing partners are outright royalty.. or so they thought. Especially in Asia, which is one of the reason LO / LOIM is not at its full potential there.

One of the best private banks in the world

Relationship Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch full-time for more than a year

ProsOne of the best private banks in the world as it is a leader in wealth management and the conservative approach is very helpful as clients feel their money is secure

ConsHasn't taken the expansive approach and very conservative which is negative as their rates are not very competitive and it is hard to get new business although older clients are very satisfied

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more reactive to regional offices

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

proud to work for this bank

Account Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch

ProsLO has a high reputation
one could be proud to work for one of the oldest banks in Europe

Consthey are not going with the trend
quite conservative - it is not fun to work there (as it might be with IT companies)
do not really support part-time work

Advice to Senior Managementplease communicate more often to employees

Relaxed, but boring...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch

ProsSubstantially less pressure than working in an investment bank.
Small office where everyone gets along and new employees fit in quickly.
Private banking job is fulfilling: banker-client relationships are forged to last for a long time and very often develop into social acquaintances outside the office.
Very little micro-management - everyone shares a similar amount of responsibility in their work.
Competitive salary, for the senior employees.

ConsWork can be very mundane.
Not much of an office atmosphere as small number of employees is made worse by the spacious office floor and the fact that employees are often out wining and dining with (potential) clients, making the office appear ghostly quiet at times.
Very difficult to get promotion, as everything has to go through head office in Geneva.
Similar to the point above, things can get annoyingly bureaucratic working in the London office.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy more people, especially secretaries.
