    Pros

    Good bank brand 401k with nice match EMployee gym is modern

    Cons

    Stay away from Global Markets, poor leadership and no vision for growth Town halls provide zero useful info. Just bumbling heads who ramble on and on and on.... Very difficult to get anything done, processes are slow and technology is old Most good people have left the bank already so remaining crowd is not motivated or comptent Worst are the MDs in business and technology inside GM. The bank would be better... without them - most are there 20+ years an collecting fat checks and rarely show up for work and blame others for their mistakes.
