Pros

Lots of room to identify issues and work independently to come up with solutions to fix the same. Issues are endless, so there is definitely a lot of room to work in this space.

Cons

Getting management to acknowledge the issue and agree on a plan for remediation that can be completed is definitely a difficult task. Many remediation projects get started, but few ever get finished.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold staff accountable for quality, and make sure staff completes work they are assigned.

Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good, as all IB's are.

    Cons

    All the infamous downsides of banking are true here. Facetime, being called in on weekends / at all hours, associates yelling at people, lack of visibility / people getting credit for your work. Furthermore, exit opportunities are not all it's cracked out to be - positions at good VC's / PE firms (good meaning good hours) are very contested and generally only given to top analysts. Top meaning you got 1600 on your SAT and you are a genius, with or without social skills, or that you sucked up a lot and are a partner's pet. For the rest of the population, exit ops into corporate finance, business development, etc are not that different than if you worked for a management consulting firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Facetime is stupid - let analysts sleep in the mornings while they are waiting for the next review / feedback cycle

    Pros

    Salaries, bonus and learning and development opportunities are good.
    Global organisation which opens up a range of job opportunities across the world

    Cons

    A completely non-collaborative approach between senior management and staff - everything is top down
    People managed purely through performance not through behaviours -leading to a fear culture
    Exceedingly long hours
    No reward and recognition programs
    No clear strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your employees have to say and give them a voice.
    Empower your employees to make their own decisions without fear of retribution
