    Pros

    Management puts a lot of focus on employee engagement. People look forward to going to work. They are very flexible and appreciate work/life balance, at least in my area.

    Cons

    Org chart is pretty flat so not much room for growth unless you want to switch departments or change paths.

    Add in some more Team Leads and Managers to take the pressure off existing employees and give people more opportunities

    Pros

    A layback environment comparing to GS, MS, or other first tier investment banks

    Cons

    It is a very messy working environment, disorganized and people play politics more than focusing on getting the work done. Some very incompetent staffs and senior management around.
