Pros: culture, people
Cons: managers, low efficiency
Management care about employee work life balance, with creative ways to improve working hours.
Smart and nice co-workers, however sometimes there could be office politics.
Company culture encourage innovation, hence you have chance to present your idea. However things could move quite slowly due to the scale of the company.

Bad hours and not competitive pay

The job has a lot of purely operational work, which is tedious and does not teach you much about finance. The pay is really not competitive given the long hours
