    Bad credit rating. One minor crisis and the company will get blown out of the water.

    IT Dept is low expectations, low output. A few stars carry a lot of low contributing head count. Can be bureaucratic.

    Pros

    Potential career growth if you are willing to fight for it. Old guard (Equities) is ripe for shakeup if you have the guts and can play politics.
    (IT) Easy to fade into the low productivity curve and exert minimal effort. International opportunities.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt like a special education prison (IT)
    TPS reports can be a drag. A lot of hairy legacy processes.

    Advice to Management

    Richard Handler is sketchy, watchout !!!
