      Pros

      Pretty good on Internal mobility

      Cons

      - Senior management are incompetent and out of touch - all the quality people have left and remaining are overpaid and incompetent especially the ones at the top - massive cost cutting and redundancy in all parts of the bank. Experienced and competent staff are let go and replaced by people that are not even from banking industry - constant restructuring resulting in loss of direction, increased operational risks, lack of cohesiveness and massive inefficiencies - salary is below market benchmark - bonuses are low despite good profit performance. Senior management keeps a big chunk for their own bonuses and leaves little for people below - due to cost cutting measures, it’s common to see one person performing a 2-3 person scope. No work life balance as a result.

      Relatively good benefits - that’s all I can think of, in my previous team

      Depends on the dept/ team/ boss you work for - was unfortunate to have worked for an unprofessional and rude one. Same goes for work life balance....

      Pros

      The IT infrastructure is more developed than some of its peers. For instance, colleagues from different regions can hold video conference calls and share screens with each other. This is certainly a pro for Business Analysts.

      Cons

      The company is pushing through aggressive cost-cutting plans to move jobs to low-cost locations. Working with teams with Poland, London or even New York certainly poses a challenge to efficiency as well as work-life-balance.

      Good opportunities for those who are willing to take up additional responsibilitues. Off-late there is a focus on employee engagement and options for Internal Mobility. Above average on compensation part against its peers.

      Cons

      Work life balance ia slightly not good at sometimes. Usual politics as everywhere in promotion process etc.
