    Pros

    Good atmosphere; good benefits; in Private Wealth Management, your team is your lifeblood...so if you find a team that you like and is successful, then you can be set for a long time.

    Cons

    Big bank; therefore this means there are limitations to how fast you can move up vertically. Management is content to keep you content in an entry level role for as long as they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize talent to stay somehow.
