Pros: easy hours
Cons: clueless management, especially in risk
I've been with the bank for over 10 years and it has survived a number of close calls. Energy blow up, Kerviel, Greece. Unfortunately, the bank is its own worst enemy. Recent management changes, especially in risk where I work, have left many of us scratching our heads. The people Paris has put in charge over here have lost the confidence of the line. We had high hopes that with an American CEO from a bulge bracket firm, things would change, but they've just gotten worse. Moving across town to an office space where senior credit officers will loose their desks and their privacy is not helping morale. On the bright side, no one works much past 5:30 or 6 and no weekends.
