Pros

Diverse company with abundance of lateral and vertical opportunities; overseas opportunities if you desire; decent pay scale comparing to similar financial service companies; good work life balance.

Cons

matrix organization created by inefficient centers of "excellence". Bureaucratic in many areas that creates unnecessary work; Lack of true vision from senior management, more block and tackling and passive reactions. Poor presentation skills throughout, very common to see powerpoint presentation as simple as Excel Copy and paste. way too much restrictions caused partially by regulations, employees are scared of saying what they think.

Advice to Management

need to strengthen talent base and grow leaner

    Pros

    My coworkers are very helpful, kind, intelligent, and competent. The training program is quite thorough. The work is rigorous and challenging but fair. A variety of resources are provided. The work environment is comfortable, flexible, and versatile.

    Cons

    The pay is low, low, low. It really could be a tad higher for the type of work we are asked to do. The yearly work schedule is a bit up in the air. Nothing is stated in stone, so balancing one's work and personal life is difficult. The branch is small. Team-work is not promoted at this branch. Autonomy is thought of as a very, very important quality.

    Advice to Management

    I wish they were more supportive in the process of client base development.
