    I worked at BTG Pactual full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can make a good income, between salary and "meritocracy" bonus. Many good, intelligent, and helpful employees. Global locations for those willing and wanting to move, travel, and broaden their cultural exposure.

    Cons

    No consideration whatsoever regarding work/life balance. Very little esprit and little desire amongst employees to extend contact outside of work. Little direction from upper management; a sink or swim atmosphere. Lack of workplace discipline and open architecture is terrible for focused work and needed confidentiality. As a very high placed senior manager (partner) said, "welcome to the pirate ship".

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your core values, provide support and feedback to employees, define values and goals that feed the evaluations for the "meritocratic" bonus. Greatly improve communication and esprit.
