    Junior staff will be given plenty of opportunity to develop their careers. Management and colleagues are generally supportive. Investment banking is a very dynamic environment that offers many interesting challenges.

    Can be overly bureaucratic. The bank's technology needs major investment, but this investment has recently started. Senior management and the business can be short sighted when planning budgets and projects.

    There's always new work and initiatives to keep you busy; you will never be bored for long.
