Pros

The benefits package is heads and tails above most other industries. The MRP, although limited in investment options, is 15 percent of eligible compensation without the associate making any contribution.

Cons

Senior management loves to create sub-committees that discuss over and over again a variety of opportunities and challenges. The company is slow to make decisions and implementation is not a strong suit. Information is not disseminated in a timely manner to other team members.

Advice to Management

Considering the low morale created from the previous layoffs, management may want to consider being more open about ongoing discussions for changes or enhancements.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty outstanding (one of the best I've seen) and they advertise their "total" compensation package as being very generous. This is true when you consider that they multiply your salary by 15% and drop that into a pension account for you and let it grow in their mutual funds. People are pretty nice for the most part and offices are updated. Upper management is easy to talk to and usually willing to listen. Opportunity for advancement is there and definitely supported by upper management.

    Cons

    Things take very long to take place. Since it's a financial institution, projects and such move at a slower pace... to ensure that security is not breached and that no application breaks. Don't expect things to happen overnight. And don't expect to advance as quickly as you'd like although the opportunities are there.

    Advice to Management

    Involve your fellow teammates more in your decision making process. Enlist some representatives of every class and make a sort of senate committee to ensure that voices will be heard when thinking of implementing new ideas or changes.

    Pros

    Great pay - this place defines golden handcuffs!
    Low stress environment - associates can have a great work-life balance
    Probably a great place to go and retire

    Cons

    Claims to be a collaborative culture - which makes it impossible for anything to get done, to the point of being dysfunctional. Everybody has a voice in everything - there is no agreed way to stop discussing things in endless meetings - but when decisions are made, there is no transparency to how they were arrived at.
    Does not have a clearly defined organization structure - and that only leads to confusion at all levels as to who is responsible for what.
    "Culture" is a big word here - anybody thinking of going to work here should think twice about whether they will be able to fit in to this culture - and go in with their eyes open!

    Advice to Management

    First - draw up a clear org chart - everything good will come from that!
    Next - set clear objectives and goals for each function, that are time-bound and measurable - work should be measured by more than just how many meetings have been held on the subject.
