    Pros

    Solid business model. Highly skilled front office professionals. Smart management. Increasing nation-wide brand awareness. Good life-working balance.

    Cons

    IT weak, isolated from business. Old-school HR. Internal mobility not supported.

    Advice to Management

    Too much risk-aversion: raising the barrier is achievable without compromising long-term solidity. Capitalize on people unspotted skills giving them real opportunities to deliver value.

    I worked at BCV full-time

    Pros

    Local people, no stress work, human size bank, good implantation on the local market as a reference

    Cons

    Disorganized, management don't care about employees. Salaries are much under the market prices. No opportunities for long term employees, they better hire external people and pay them more than to do evaluate their own employees. Bank controlled by ex-credit suisse. Enormous turn-over

    Pros

    Good dedicated people great to work with.

    Cons

    Management with no empathy what so ever. Only one God: Money.

    Advice to Management

    Get the best out of the employees by trusting them instead of squeezing them! Very short term vision of a poor management. Very sad!
