    Pros

    As far as large banks go, very laid back environment. Management is open to helping you grow.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to move around once you are set in a certain career path. Will pay outside employees more than internal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on using risk as a competitive advantage. Don't let change happen so slowly as it currently does.

    Pros

    The work is not incredibly difficult but is challenging enough to not get bored. The people are all pretty much great, never had any problems. It's very easy to develop and move around within the company whether it be pure promotion or keeping your role but with a different group or leaving your role and group entirely. It's also a safe company where I have no fears of being laid off.

    Cons

    Work can become redundant and if you're too efficient it can get boring if you don't seek out more varied work or projects.

    Advice to Management

    Can't really advise management in any way. They're fully engaged, friendly and accommodating.

    Pros

    Great staff, benefits, and overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    The goals and pace are definitely a bit hard to get used to. However, if you have the right manager who knows what they are doing then you can definitely breakthrough any barrier.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the suggestions of employees.
