Pros

Pretty relaxed for a financial firm. Work is easy. Good opportunity for advancement in the UK.

Cons

The focus on meritocracy is really a sham. Promotions have more to do with who you know and how long you've been around. Equities are decent, but across the majority of the internal engineering organization - most of the talent has already walked out the door. XP desktops are still the norm.

Advice to Management

A better focus on well thought out technical leadership and modern technologies would be a welcome change

    Pros

    talented people and good assets

    Cons

    Poor processes and lack of agility

    Advice to Management

    Need to get heads out of the sand and embrace bold changes..
    Also single-minded focus on bottomline at cost of employee welfare is damaging!
