    Less red tape than a bulge bracket

    Cons

    Terrible culture, misleading management, unhappy employees
    Compensation lags peers; at least from what I saw....

    Hire competent management. Seriously, communicate to employees and get away from a culture of fear to one of achievement. Improve compensation.
