    Pros

    Great unique career experience, the bank invested a lot of time in their staff and the compensation was good. A lot of excellent people professionally and socially.

    Cons

    Obviously the firm going into administration, the job could no longer be guaranteed and the workforce was wound down. This had a negative impact on the atmosphere.
