    management. There should be more incentive to the employees to thrive rather than just the bonus, some career progression or something...

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BTG Pactual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and generally a meritocratic culture where compensation can be competitive.

    Cons

    Senior management/partners have completely lost the plot post founder's arrest. They have become incredibly short-sighted and are basically "kicking" people on the way out. Commitments are not being honored which is a real shame and could create serious legal issues for the firm. It is a shame for the people and their families that are being screwed. It is also a shame for the institution as it will ultimately be its demise. When all of these high flying, entrepreneurial, talented people disperse to their next jobs, who among them will trade with BTG? Partner with BTG on a transaction? Recommend to their company to seek out BTG's advice or services?

    slightly less siloed than working for a larger bank in your day to day tasks.
