    Pros

    - The people are great, and senior management is very approachable
    - Good work/life balance
    - Talented professionals who are great teachers

    Cons

    - The Bank is consolidating significantly and will have a very small US presence going forward

    Pros

    Great team environment and work life balance. Also great 401k match as well as base starting salary. Office is a great location and nice.

    Cons

    Company is consolidating on worldwide basis to the UK. There has been significant voluntary and involuntary turnover which has had a large impact on general morale. Not a place to start a new career in the US as the company future is in the UK

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees and retain them by giving adequate raises/promotions/bonuses especially to analysts/associates.
