    Pros

    Many opportunities overseas if you are willing to move. Benefits and pay are good for a multinational large bank company.

    Cons

    Currently they are struggling with their staffing and expenses in a low growth economy. Every few years they seem to want to re invent the company image.

    Upper management is changing too often which leads to fractured goals to contain expenses. Their job growth plans seem to change yearly.
