    Pros

    Culture is inclusive and positive.
    Much less corporate BS than in other organisations while still retaining a distinct (and positive) identity.

    Cons

    The internal bureaucracy is arbitrary, time-consuming and unresponsive.
    This makes it very hard to get things done and holds the organisation back.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management are making the right noises about focusing on customer s. Please continue to do this but also look at the bureaucracy which is stopping us responding to customer needs.

    Pros

    The bank has a large exposure in Asia and offers career opportunity to a diversified number of regions and countries

    For being so concentrated in Asia most part of the senior management sits there and the teams in Americas and Europa are a bit out of the decision process
