    Pros

    Quality and intelligence of people
    Expertise in wide range of products make it easier to pitch clients
    Global reach to be able to answer any question
    Powerful brand name

    Cons

    Highly competitive. Company culture is to let people step on others' mandates in order to see who can do best. Of course you are not made aware that someone is trying to do your own job

    Advice to Management

    More respect to employees and clients would benefit. The competitive culture exhausts staff, and in the end those who are able to climb to the top, however smart and outstanding, are those who do not care about the wider ecosystem.

  2. Culture is much like what you would expect in a large investment bank

    Pros

    A truly entrepreneurial organisation with a "can do" work ethic and solid European culture. When you have good idea that should make money you should get all the support you need to get it done.

    Cons

    Excessively competitive organisation with multiple silos leading to scary political infighting. Different groups pursue the same goals in competition with the adage that "winner takes all". Co-heads are often appointed to encourage management struggles with one victor.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos and encourage teamworking.
