    Could have been good, but poor management led to poor decisions.

    Pros

    Many of the co-workers were great to work with.

    Cons

    First of all, the management there is very bad. Most of them don't have a clue how to manage software and they move up the ladder based on connections instead of competence. They have some big holes in their software process which tends to burn developers out or frustrate them beyond repair. The UK office basically runs the show so the US site feels they don't have much autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Quit bringing in crappy management to the site. There has to be a better pool locally that can fill those roles much better, unless they are staying away. They need to attract better projects to the site instead of turning themselves into a major league dumping ground for the entire global company.

    Pros

    Large multi national bank
    Good benefits
    Various divisions and businesses
    Mostly good people

    Cons

    Culture of some divisions and teams is appalling and does not match the rest of the banks culture or outward image

    Very slow on decision making and too much bureaucracy and process
    To slow to change management agenda to all the department and ranks
    Middle management does not promote banks or other divisions culture
    continuous changes in personnel and

    Advice to Management

    Please educate the and make middle management promote the bank policies and culture. Stick with one strategy long enough
