    Pros

    Not much. Firm is closing down as soon as they can.

    Cons

    Low morale. Even if you want to do something good some old-minded folks will shut you down.

    Advice to Management

    Instill some culture, enable ideas even if you are closing the company.

    Pros

    Great unique career experience, the bank invested a lot of time in their staff and the compensation was good. A lot of excellent people professionally and socially.

    Cons

    Obviously the firm going into administration, the job could no longer be guaranteed and the workforce was wound down. This had a negative impact on the atmosphere.
