    Large systemic bank offers a wide area of opportunities, reasonable compensation, modern profile, good HR management, average social/professional life balance

    Cons

    Recent multiple mergers have had an impact on everything; a lot unavoidable inward looking and empire buildings in a new environment.

    Advice to Management

    Productivity could improve if simple management practices were followed by senior/middle managers; a lot of waisted time in meetings without specific agendas, requirements, outputs. More focus on results in a new market.
