    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Mostly fine

      Pros

      Staff that you work with are all very friendly and inclusive

      Cons

      Staff burnout is very high and you can tell very easily who has decided that they are only going to do the bare minimum. This is not a reflection on the attitude of the staff, but of the upper management who push them.
