    Pros

    It all depends on who your manager is, but as far as I know most people were satisfied with goals, expectations, feedback, leeway (to work on PDP projects, travel for development sessions, pursue professional designations, etc.).

    Cons

    Some PDP projects seemed haphazardly put together, without even a real need for the output. PDP management was not very good about distributing information, case in point: with financial crisis in fall of 2008 PDPs were reasonably worried about there being rotations at the job fair in the spring... no definitive answers for months and then we come to find that there are 15 or so jobs for 80+ people.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from PDP staff to the PDPs needs to be improved (timeliness and straightforwardness are appreciated). PDP projects should be scrapped in their current format and allow PDPs to be more creative.

    Great coworkers, projects and good culture of people. Great retirement plan!

    Cons

    financial services doesn't feel as stable as it once was

    Advice to Management

    I believe it is only a matter of time till the company fully recovers from this financial crisis. Strong commitment to our products and our employees have paid off well during the economic downturn.
