Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
-Fast paced, Tight delivery timelines-Most tenured employees have deep understanding of Investment banking and/or Wealth Management domains-Very slow processes, ticket based hand-offs across multiple teams, multiple external teams need to be involved to deliver a production release-Slow technology adoption, Outdated tech stack. Cloud adoption still in early stages. Whatever is adopted, is engineered really well- Significant additional work in projects unrelated business enablement, due to platform hygiene and security risk remediation targets- Professional work culture. India teams are respected and suggestions are heard, India leadership team is good.- Office politics is limited. Performance, merit, Initiative is recognized & rewarded- Senior management is approachable, Skip level meetings are encouraged

Pros

-Razor focused on delivery and meeting business commitments -Good pay

Cons

-Long hours. Daily calls with onsite teams in NY -Too many employee engagement events, organization development initiatives, which seriously drain delivery time

Good work culture but less learning & growth opportunity

Though this company offers a very good standard work culture in general, it all depends on one's boss. Junior and mid-level folks are having great knowledge and experience.There are many people who are working for more than 10 + years in this company, still maintaining the ancient tech stack. Sometimes they create problems. This company strongly believes the red-tape system only. One have to face unnecessary problems with this red-tape if he/she want to use any recent technologies. Not everyone is measured with correct yardstick. Not everyone in same position are getting equal pay.

Pros

excellent peers, work culture is really good

Cons

Old tech stack, monotonous job, No/less opportunity to grow, timely politics

Good management support and respect for employees, extremely slow career progression

The management is very supportive and friendly. However, depending on the team you are in, people can be very political. Also, career progression is extremely slow because of the huge number of people working here and there is constant pressure on making yourself visible :(The salary standards are low compared to other investment banks, even the ones smaller in size.

Pros

Management Support, Open door policy, no. of leaves given

Cons

Salary, progression

Productive and fun place

Productive and fun place to work. Could be under pressure to meet deadlines but mostly laid back. You can see overall good growth over the time and bonuses could be really good.

Company dont have much work. You have to be over smart

You have to work only for your own survival. Company won't provide you any task. You have to be very smart , you should keep on doing 1 - 1 more as compared to work

Pathetic

My Manager and my mentor were just pathetic. They always used to demoralize me and humiliate me when i go to ask doubts. They used to laugh at me when I used to ask doubts. They even didn't let me speak and used to interrupt me and tell me to remain in dicussions.

Pros

Nil

Cons

Everything About it.

Morgan Stanley review

Good company for beginners. Nice salary and benefits offered. Management is decent. Culture is fairly good. Don't work as a contingent staff. Job security is a bit concerning.
