    Opportunities for proffessional growth were provided.

    The company has not availed of the recent market upswing to the best of their strengths.
    It seems that they have lost their edge in research.

    Find ways to stabilize IT departments and ensure best talent is retained.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, benefits are good, cafeteria is good. A rich history, though there has been drift since 2009.

    Cons

    Inability to adapt to the changing environment has resulted in diminished opportunity and pay. It is also very difficult to advance and usually promote from outisde.

    Advice to Management

    It is time to shake things up - continuing to do what worked 10 years ago is not working! I applaud rebranding to a fixed income firm, at least we are accentuaing our strengths.
