It's what you make it
Helpdesk/Desktop Support Technician (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 12, 2017
Sometimes it's a little unorganized as far as the work assigned from management, and they have a tendency to micro manage. But overall not a bad company.

Learnt a lot about the sell side

Was a great learning experience on how the sell side functions. I realized that I would not enjoy it seeing as it felt a little methodical and repetitive.

Trade Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 6, 2017
The workplace culture is awful and nepotistic from the DLJ and early CS days. With the new CEO there are internal struggles and poor management as the bank looks to shift directions. In addition trading in general is becoming less and less profitable to the banking operation as a whole
Pros
Big bank
Cons
