    Pros

    Peers and colleagues that I met

    Cons

    The environment. Middle management just pushes down what C level management says. Never listened to those of us in the field, just tried to give us excuses and "coaching" on what to do. They need to wake up and realize the market for banking, especially investments has changed. If you think what happened at Wells Fargo is an isolated incident, you're kidding yourself. Same thing with Credit Cards has happened at BofA.
