    credit analyst

    Credit Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt's a pleasant working environment. I learnt a lot about wholesale banking. Staffs are professional and nice. Compensation is ok.

    ConsEverything seems pretty good. But I only worked at there for almost a year. So I can't say I have a very thorough understanding.

    Bank undergoing change

    N/A (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIn past, bank valued employees with good banking skills. This has changed. There is an increasing rush to replace employees with others who have experience in businesses the bank does not have the competency to support.

    ConsBank is undergoing a lot of change. Power base is centered in Asia and tends to be ignorant of market dynamics in US.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
