      Pros

      For someone willing to take calculated risks and speak their mind, this is a good company. Strong benefits plan Good compensation possible

      Cons

      Very "staid" in their approach to change Can be tiresome to try to make a difference - but I think it's an industry thing (finance) more than a company thing.

      -High turnover in cybersecurity second line team which is a drain on productivity and morale -An impression that the newly promoted CISO does not care about his team, does not actively manage to improve performance, tolerates and promotes management even when they exhibit behavior that goes against the organization's values

      Pros

      Coworkers, are nice and supportive

      Cons

      In my opinion, bad Management, the executives need to gut out all the old managers who never left the high school mentality. The new managers hired were not ever from the banking industry. Their systems are from the '80s, honestly, they need to be liquidated. A Joke, if you ask me. Health insurance was much too high.

      Change and Solutions team- No growth in money or role

      May 4, 2021 - Associate in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good work life balance Good PTO

      Cons

      1) The team does not increase your salary even after 4-5 years of being in the position 2) Good bonus for first and second year at the bank, but it stagnates after 3rd year and really does not increase. In some cases it goes down. You will find that new hires at your level are paid a lot more than you are 3) Management is biased and plays favorites with projects and staffing individuals- if or did not come from IB forget it- they will put you on bad process projects and you will never be positioned to have a good exit opportunity. No IB experience is actually required for doing this job well. 4) Very beauracratic in promotions- if they don't have space at higher management levels, no matter how good, you will never be promoted
