    Pros

    Good pay compared to other banks

    Cons

    CIO William Streitburg is full of publicity and lies. He got an award from Red Hat for projects not even use in production. At the start of coronavirus he got angry at people who demanded to work from home. Infrastructure leaders are all lazy, they don't want explore new technologies and listen to innovators. But their website and Linkedin is full of lies and propaganda about being innovative and modern. Why ask people to work on weekends if not pay them? You are greedy and abusive. This is modern slavery.
