Pros: nice view from the office
Cons: lacking communication from management
Years ago Brown Brothers was the financial firm you wanted to be with - employees had a long history, everyone was friendly and bonuses were great. Nowadays, BBH has become like most firms, and have cut costs by cutting jobs. They are sending as much work as possible to other countries (cheap labor). We have been lucky enough to receive yearly bonuses, but that has steadily gone down over the years and raises that picked up this year after a 3 year hault, were literally pennies, if you were fortunate to receive a raise. Management is always crying poverty but their pockets don't seem affected. Typical day is 9-5, however when your boss comes in late, s/he expects you to stay late as well too. If not, you are viewed as a slacker. Co-workers are nice, however my group has the "clock watcher, tell all to mgmt" behind your back. Hardest part of the job is all the bs you put with and never receive any recognition. Most enjoyable part is that I do have a job and I support my family on my paycheck. Yes, thankful for job, but wish I were someplace else.
