    Great benefits and vast opportunities for career growth. There are tons of opportunities to improve the bank and thus tons of interesting work available.

    Change happens so fast that direction and goals are hard to meet due to constant change in direction. Employment is not certain for anyone as the bank transforms and with deep cuts in headcount, there are deep gaps of knowledge.
