    Pros

    Great product solid local position. Strong Nordic franchise and still lot of talented people around. Good work/life balance a generally flat organization so opinions get heard.

    Very Stockholm focused. Not focusing enough in growing the business. The bank is not leveraging on its strong local franchise in the international markets. Way to many middle managers and way too little gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Growth will come from outside of Sweden. Time to wake up.

    Pros

    Good experience within the retail sector. Learning how retail banking works and bank products to customers. Knowing the standards programs of the company and what kind of department the company had. I would not say that the experience probably would be the same at all main retail banks in Sweden.

    Cons

    The were little knowledge about how to move within the company. Seemed like if you started to work at retail you would be stuck at a retail position. Within the retail sector it was a clear hierarchy and seemed rigid and difficult to move up from despite performance.

    Advice to Management

    Having it easier to move between departments and Other than that I don't have issue with the management. I felt that they provided good support but that could vary between offices and branches.
