    Pros

    Staff was friendly, senior management team was very supportive. Definitely significant opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate and could have a more structured analyst program. The financial services industry has ups and down and i get that the cyclial nature of the industry probably had an effect.

    Pros

    Certain people in the office really do try to make this office a better place to work with the occasional cupcake days or free lunches

    Cons

    Most people are not happy here, though this may just be a consequence of a bad market regardless of where you work

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. I really enjoyed the people I worked with. I found information sharing to be welcomed and any question I ever had was welcomed. Great place to start a career. A lot of very intelligent people will surround you.

    Cons

    Dont have a lot of negatives to say. At times there can be some oversight between upper level management and some of the lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to relate more to employees and keep them in the loop.

    Pros

    big bank, great place to network, people are always willing to answer your questions. Senior vice-presidents were very nice. Good place to gain experience and learn investment strategies

    Cons

    growth within the industry is limited, can be stressful at times in order to meet client deadlines, not alot of downtime sometimes alot of filing when there is not much work

    Advice to Management

    A training seminar in the beginning for the interns, overall it was pretty well organized but wish they have intern more involved.
