Pros

Big name in financial services, decent benefits, you get to work with people who have been in the industry, lots to learn

Cons

Moderate perks, lower than average salary (unless they called you in there).... thats why i said...negotiate before you join.
HR is horrible ... particularly if you are an immigrant, they know they got you for your golden period and they play it dumb asif no one knows whats happening, but they all do. They will just blame the procedures about it.
Management is mixed, some people are easy and some more politically oriented.
if you are just a straight shooter, but dont know your politics, this place is not for you.

Annual reviews are a joke. They wont even hand it to you after its due for 6 months, still all the "deserving" ones have received their bonuses and pay-increases.

Oh... and the funny thing.... there might be directors and VPs working without any reports.

Advice to Management

dont hold talent because you own them as per immigration.

judge people by how much they put into the project, not politics.
