    Pros

    Well-organized and disciplined; forward thinking; values technology; great vacation allowance; good annual bonuses

    Cons

    small regional bank with global bureaucracy; lip service to work-life balance but not in practice; very few people seem to be happy here; burnout is on the rise

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to lose good talent as people realize they can't and don't want to be on the work treadmill 24/7. Stop asking how long things take, then telling us to do it in half the time (and just for the sake of doing it fast).
