    Pros

    Some of the employees were truly hard working good people, who cared for the well being of those around them.

    Cons

    Senior management were some of the most vile people I have ever known and I've been in the industry for more than 25 years, working in London, NY and Stamford for this company. Their greed, especially around comp time, was obnoxious. I also have nothing good to say about the HR organization -- each and every one of them was a waste of space.

    Advice to Management

    Bring some senior Swiss nationals to work in NY and London so that they can truly see what goes on in this organization in the regions. They will be shocked.

    Zero work life balance Zero opportunity for advancement Management are rude to co worker and new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your job and quit letting your salary and job title get to your head. Be a leader. Create a company culture that will help reduce your turnover rate. Take pride in your job.

    Pros

    Very friendly people. You can talk to anyone and usually get a nice response and some good advice. Great name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Very boring and tedious work. Manager made it seem like her work was so hard and stressful when in reality she was more of a secretary than a financial services associate.

    Pros

    Great to work for and enjoyed the culture. Global company with major wealth management business and renewed investment bank under new management.

    Cons

    Large organisation with lots of layers of middle management. Can be less entrepreneurial than what you would expect at a global investment bank

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining younger talent through more active mentoring and promotion programs. Utilise global nature of organisation more in keeping young employees

    Pros

    Benefits, Social Plan, Work Infrastructure, Salary, Career Opportunities

    Cons

    Outsourcing at all cost, Senior Management starting initiatives but leaving before done (often leaving a mess behind)

    Advice to Management

    As for outsourcing, don't just look at salary savings on fancy Powerpoint presos, but also put a value/number behind the quality of work for each region
