Review Highlights

Pros
  • The company also has a great culture and most of its employees try to have a good work-life balance (in 45 reviews)

  • Good benefits, good pay, good global exposure but still very beaurocratic and "meeting heavy" (in 21 reviews)


Cons
  • Forget about work life balance that they preach on paper but do not put in practice (in 12 reviews)

  • No priorities at the senior management level (need to be everything to everyone) and execution is unrealistic (in 11 reviews)

    Pros

    Interesting work, lots of pride in the company and stable, trustworthy culture to be a part of.

    Cons

    Very corporate, not a lot of opportunity to do your own thing inside such a structured chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open yourselves up to new ideas and embrace the changing landscape in financial services. Don't let the attorneys make all of your decisions for you.
