    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Innovative environment gives plenty of opportunities for career growth

    Cons

    Nothing specific to JB comes to mind. Just the nature of the industry means potential job elimination due to changing business direction. Up to the individual to be able to re-market internally.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose the family culture

  10. "Julius Baer - From "big enough to matter, small enough to care", to "whatever suits the CEO""

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Julius Bär full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Julius Baer has accomplished much in the past 10-15 years and completely reshaped into the third largest private bank in Switzerland. Whilst it was smaller (less than 3000 employees), senior management made a significant effort to know most staff, and there was a great team feel to the organisation

    Cons

    Regular reorganisations to continue the illusion of growth, and hide the dead bodies (exited senior management, IT costs spiralling out of control, lack of profit [or losses] from acquisitions).
    Concentration risk of board members who are (seemingly) powerless to oppose or challenge the decisions of CEO, allowing BC to perpetuate his own interests (personal as well as professionally).
