2014 WSO Rankings for Investment Banks: Promotions & Fairness (Part 4 of 10)

Your boss takes credit for your work and when there is a mistake he or she throws you under the bus. Sound familiar? What about when the analyst or associate that does the least work gets the most praise and the highest bonus? Well, luckily, both of these are very rare occurrences at these banks...

Below you will find the following rankings:

1. Top 15 Investment Banks with the BEST FEEDBACK. What banks are the best at communicating with their junior employees?
2. Top 15 Investment Banks with the BEST RECOGNITION. What banks actually give you recognition when you do a good job?
3. Top 15 Investment Banks for FAIRNESS. What banks give the most fair treatment across employees regarding promotions and in general?

These firms are all ranked on a PERCENTILE basis across all 5,000 companies in the WSO Company Database based on thousands of WSO member rankings. Feel free to share the rankings below on your site by copying the html code below the graphic. Stay tuned, because on January 6th, we are going to be announcing the investment banks with the best pay!
