    Pros

    Cafeteria
    401K Match up to 5%
    Dress as you may
    Vacation days and sick days rolled into one - as new employee you start with 15.

    Cons

    The clients you get aren't very by good, especially since most banks get marketing services for free - which makes the products less valuable.

    Backstabbing employees throw you under the bus.

    Hire and promote women mainly.

    Terrible management which does not know processes or people.

    No work from home policy.

    Hires inexperienced talent, most of which are not professional at all.

    Should have kept your smart employees and built teams around them.
