    Pros

    Great corporate training in institutional finance, high expectations everything must be perfect - great resources to produce a great product. working with very smart people

    You must be a fit in the corporate culture and there is not a lot of room to get creative or explore new ideas here, it's a competitive culture and slow to promote and reward.

    keep the culture strong, I learned a lot of valuable skills working here

    Pros

    People are very professional and hard working. There is very little politics at play and everyone is focusing on getting the work done. Knowledge sharing encouraged is well executed across teams

    Cons

    Long work hour is the trend. You will be expected to be working on multiple projects always at the same time and time to market is essential.
