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?

    Institutional Fixed Income Sales

    Pros

    Very few but for 'junior' staff the ability to use client contacts/relationships into next role. A very small number of' knowledgeable and friendly staff' who make the place mildly tolerably.

    Cons

    Do not be mis-lead by the name. This is a broker/boiler-room 'hiding' behind the Mitsubishi name for some creditably. Whilst it can't be denied that they have some high profile clients who 'value' the service and it is a good stepping stone for sales people looking to move from Bloomberg to a career in sell-side sales, the single biggest issue with the company is Management and specifically the CEO. Things like, minimum number of minutes for being on the phone and performance league tables do nothing to dispel the 'call-centre/boiler-room' vibe. All the comments about the CEO and his interview style on Glassdoor are true and if anything do not give a clear indication of just how bad this guy is. If he was in any other institution where he was not the top dog he would have been found out and thrown out within 5 minutes. The atmosphere in the firm is toxic as he has created an atmosphere of fear, and from speaking to staff who have been at the firm for various lengths of time, it seems its the same story if you have been there 6mths or 10yrs years. The Glassdoor reviews are very accurate and I only wish I had discovered, and read, the reviews before I had accepted the opportunity to interview there- let alone work there. AVOID!!

    Pros

    Use your contacts in your next role

    Cons

    A soul destroying place to work. Management have no idea how to get the best out of employees, using only bullying techniques. The CEO thinks he is some kind of Lord Sugar and has a reputation in the market, ask around and you will found out for yourself. A depressing environment. Avoid going here at all costs.

    Pros

    Salesforce given lots of opportunities and responsibilities from the beginning Hard work & tenacity are highly valued and rewarded Career progression can be swift Remuneration policy is transparent and you are very well paid if you achieve good results

    Cons

    Sales role can feel quite repetitive after a while if you aren't given more managerial type responsibilities. The flip side of being given a lot of opportunities and responsibilities early on is that it can be too challenging for some and they dont last long.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros working for MUTB.

    Cons

    The corporate culture allows sexism, gender inequality, racism, harassment, bullying, backstabbing and favoritism. Incompetent white men succeed as white privilege is a thing for the JPN mgmt. Perf does not matter for them as long as they are habitual liars, and yes men. I have seen so many more qualified and experienced women ended up losing their promotions to those men. There has not been a woman executive for a long time. Even if there is one, she is a token. Every year, responsibilities increase without compensated pay for those who actually work. If you say no, you are insubordinate. If you decide to speak up and report issues, the HR will deny any unlawful activities and claim the company has lack of resources for the business needs to shut you up. Retaliation will then follow to make you not want to go to work until you decide to quit, so they don't have to face a risk of being sued and pay unemployment benefits and also increased tax rates. Talking about "Turnover" this place takes it to a whole new level. HR dept is unethical and dishonest.
