Support from management

Decent channels of communication but be careful what you say and to whom.

Teamwork

Fair amount of collaboration between staff and working relationships. Perks depended on local management but I found my territory to be challenging but fun.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not everyone is a single thirty-something get it done 24/7 male. Women are just as qualified and men who have families deserve and earned a reasonable work/life balance.

What I like about the company

No day was like the prior. Customer base much more sophisticated than my job after I left. Good team and willing management to offer alternative solutions

What I dislike about the company

Job security disappeared after the merger with Citi/SB. Lots of relocating and then relocating while having to "reapply" for jobs you were well qualified and proven to handle the position.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop being scared of minorities and protected classes. If they aren't doing the job get rid of them. Don't let them accuse others of racism and get them fired.
  • Equal for all not just those who are connected.

What I like about the company

Looks great on resume

What I dislike about the company

Executive level does not listen to the little people who know what goes on day-to-day

Company Culture

Indian Culture is taking over technology

Teamwork

poor

Freedom to work independently

If you fail you are done as no support from upper management

Internal Communication

Communication from company upper management is regular and informed

Attitude towards older colleagues

Arrogant and condescending

Work-Life Balance

The new culture has taken away that balance
