    Pros

    You have to start somewhere I guess!

    Cons

    Managements behavior towards all employees is very disrespectful at all times. 90% of employees would jump ship given the right opportunity this makes working there even harder. It's hard to interact with other employees because everyone there pretty much dislikes their job. Management likes to change the rules all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of worrying about your reputation in the business you should address the very serious Human Resource issues within the company and learn to keep your employees happy. Unhappy current and/or former employees are no good in any type business.

    Toxic environment. It's a wonder anyone does business with this company.

    Pros

    A job is a job, i guess?

    Cons

    Senior management steamrolls all employees. Administrative staff is treated as bottom rung and gets no respect - the bankers all despise working there and voluntary turnover was at about 90% in the two years I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Your reputation is terrible and I still hear about it three years after I've left. Making serious changes in the way you manage people would be beneficial - a little respect can go a long way. Pretend you care about the people working for you and maybe you'll retain someone for more than the two years they need on their resume.
