    Pros

    At one time a leading financial institution.

    Not the same bank. Now prefer to recruit from outside the Bank rather than promote qualified talented internal employees

    Advice to Management

    Start treating existing employees like people. Cancelling benefits, pensions, etc. will come back negatively. This is no longer a fair challenging environment.
