    Pros

    The people are the best. Really smart. Hilarious!

    Cons

    Too often a new manager takes over a department and needs to make his/her mark by changing things. If isn't broke - don't fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you have to do - you owe the UK taxpayer.

    Pros

    Nice building with great entities. Laid back attitude shared by all staff levels where getting work done is not a priority. Work life balance very manageable.

    Cons

    Company has been operating basically bankrupt for years but doing everything possible to act like they're not until year end review time when they remind you how bad the company is doing and why you get no raise/bonus/promotion because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and accept the situation the company is in

    Pros

    - The people are great, and senior management is very approachable
    - Good work/life balance
    - Talented professionals who are great teachers

    Cons

    - The Bank is consolidating significantly and will have a very small US presence going forward
    - Employees are left in the dark on changes in strategy. It's not uncommon to see something in the news before hearing about it from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and be more proactive in holding on to your best people.
