    I worked at BOCI (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good trading manager, very knowledgeable and willing to teach;
    Most of the staff are very nice and polite, easy to deal with;
    Good view;

    Cons

    Very rigid management hierarchy;
    Sometimes tough clients to deal with;
    Many tiny management-related issues disturbs your focus on trading;
    Huge pressure when the debt market faces liquidity crisis

    Advice to Management

    Many could be changed, but so hard for such a big firm, especially owned by government. Maybe be more open to graduate and simplify recruiting process.
