    Pros

    Great support to get the job done. Direct managers were awesome always felt like they were looking out for me and my team. Helped me grow personally.

    Cons

    Slow moving train, the bank was notorious for dragging it's feet on the latest technologies. Probably a just all the regulatory rules we had to go through to migrate.

    Advice to Management

    Well since there is no managment left and JP Morgan chase has taken over I guess there isn't much left to give advice about.


  2. "no wonder it went under - senior mgmt was overly impressed with themselves"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    large, easy to hide and do nothing - paid large salaries to senior techs and managers - no formal performance review process

    Cons

    no advancement - incredible lack of technical innovation - large company so management loved to assume a "bully" attitude toward employees, partners, vendors - complete strategy, architecture and management by "PowerPoint". never saw formal documentation

    Advice to Management

    doesn't really matter at this point - company drove itself in to the ground and threw out the employees like garbage
