    Pros

    The people here are great! The environment is very easy-going and laid back. Very different from a lot of IT/Commercial Banks within the area

    Cons

    Changes are hard to implement, even if it is for improvement purpose.
    The politics of getting something as simple as training started, just took a lot more time that it's worth.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the company's vision as well as departmental visions are clearly stated for all employees. With a unified business vision, all the managers can work toward the same goal instead of withholding information/support to serve self-interest.
