    Pros

    Easy to get a job. Only an associates degree is necessary for hire. Was fun to work with the various branches.

    Cons

    In operations, you start at 30k salary. Critical atmosphere--headphones were banned while data entering. Office is loud and voices carry.

    Advice to Management

    Operations staff micromanages and critical about the darndest things. Communcation is poor.

    Pros

    ok work/life balance, more chilled out than most other ibanks on the street. fellow analysts are mostly good people, nice office space

    Cons

    bonus level way below street, nickle-and-dimes employees on expenses, poor upward mobility, exit ops are limited unless you're in a group with good dealflow

    Pros

    Not too big, not too small. IT department is responsive. Great bonuses. Good work hours and conditions. The department I was in had a great open door environment. You were free to talk to coworkers and had adequate help when needed. Very relaxed. Office was physically nice.

    Cons

    The department was bloated. They would hire people even though many of the incumbents didn't have enough work to do. Direct supervisor wouldn't give additional responsibilities despite being asked for them many times. He was a micro manager and would email me request to do something that would take less than a minute to do because he had already done 99% of the work already. The department needed to be restructured.
