Current Employee - Director in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Director in London, England (UK)
Approves of CEO

Pros

Family friendly culture exists in the company. Senior management trying to communicate much better recently. Promotes internal mobility much more nowadays.

Cons

Could be more of a meritocracy. Ever changing structure but I guess that this is the same as most banks in the current environment.

Advice to Management

Keep on trying to communicate the vision and also how we are going to get there. Fewer restructures would be appreciated by everyone.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great opportunity to interact with important clients and get insights into the private wealth management industry. The entire staff was very welcoming and eager to help.

    Cons

    The internship program gives quite a lot of busy work and did not seem to respect my knowledge of the industry or my education in finance.

    Advice to Management

    You should make better use of the incoming talent you have at your organization. Your intern class could be a valuable future asset for the company.


  2. "Unlike a swiss clock, this is not a business which operates as effectively as it should."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Visible drive from executive board to turn business around despite ongoing market turmoil

    Cons

    Messages cascaded from central rarely turned into tangible actions locally
    Decentralised operating model with little evidence of knowledge sharing or best practice
    Long term vision blured by short term reactionary approach to problem solving

    Advice to Management

    Putting the right person in the right job and empowering them to deliver clear objectives without continuously changing the goal posts
