    Pros

    The colleagues are mostly nice and quite skilled.
    The cafeteria is good but expensive.

    Cons

    The poor quality management and its lack of outlook.
    Mobbing is considered a standard in this gloomy and bleak private bank.
    Very closed and obsolete corporate culture.
    No perspective of development.
    They cannot not afford to pay licenses.
    Salaries and bonuses have been regularly decreased over years for most employees.
    The company has been struggling bad to survive further to the end of the Swiss banking privacy. It will surely not survive for very long

    take care of youe employees as if they were your best and only asset.
