    Look past prejudices of pedigree and focus on results of the workers in front of you. Reward based on performance.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great vacation time.

    Cons

    The U.S. Futures, FXPB, OTC Clearing business is poorly managed resulting in very low revenue, upset prospects/clients, and an unsuccessful business strategy.

    Advice to Management

    The group I work in, unfortunately has horrendous sexual harassment, racism and bullying by senior male managers against their female employees. If you are a female and looking at working in PS&F Derivatives/FXPB/OTC, steer clear! It's unfortunate as the rest of the company is well run and has great managers (execution, equity PB, etc). On multiple occasions male colleagues scream and swear at female employees until they are crying hysterically. Innappropriate sexual advances happen too often. Offensive and negative comments directly to employees about their ethnicity and gender are commonplace by senior management and allowed by Directors below them. Female employees have tried to change departments, those attempts are blocked by their senior management. It is sad this still exists. There is a reason the female employees leave and are pushed out of this department.
