    Pros

    Light working hours if you see that as a plus. You will look like a star if you are a bit talented because the bank is full incompetent lazy people.

    Cons

    Senior management is rude and arrogant and they live in their own world. The only feedback you get is negative feedback. You will feel like you are working in India. If you are not an Indian you will out of the informal network and your life will be miserable. There is a very grade driven culture. If you are below my grade than I have license to treat you like you are nobody.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember there iis something called talent management. We know that you do not care about us while you are enjoying your fat salaries but please try to make some effort to appreciate your subordinates.
