"Above average investment bank"

16 Apr 2022 - Executive Director in New York, NY
Positive Outlook
No Opinion of CEO


Generally better management structure than other investment banks.
Strong equity franchise (not so much for fixed income and credit).


Pay package is just average, and below market in certain departments.
Very slow in adopting modern remote working business model.

Advice to Management

Pay package (both cash and profit sharing in shares) and remote working flexibility need to improve ASAP to retain talents in today's competitive labor market.
