    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?

      Not good, but not bad either

      Pros

      The company did well responding to the pandemic. The company is trying to transform. So, you can learn lots, but you also work crazy hours here. If you really need work life balance, this is probably not the right place for you.

      Cons

      High turnover, even with leadership and senior leadership. The company is still a little all over the place with many initiatives that are out of sync. When decisions are required to be made, expedience bias often come into play. It lacks coordination and ended up losing efficiency. Too much time spending on producing / reviewing output rather than fixing data quality because people are not being recognized for fixing data / fundamental issues. Lack of clear accountabilities and collaboration among leaders contributes to negative culture. It will take time to change.
