People who have worked at banks please tell me. I am a woman POC. What bank is best for me? Morgan Stanley, Citi or JPM? I am high potential with deep experience in banking.

I don’t understand the question. You expect a firm recommendation based solely off your gender and race?

They probably want to know which company will be the most comfortable culture wise.

To clarify: which firm is the best at developing women leaders?

Definitely Wells Fargo

Off late, it's a fashion statement to find non-white females and assign them a leadership role to meet the needs of public perception. All banks are doing it.

I dont know if it's a good way to start to hire/promote someone based on "x" factor where x =/merit. If for too long Caucasians in the west have benefited from it, doesn't mean that reversing the variable ( x, where x =/merit) will be a better scheme. Despite acknowledging, promoting and consciously knowing what/how things should be, the powerful and influential continue to override the right thing to do with personal desires and greed for power and more influence, leading to a continuation in disparity that we see around us. The root cause of this all is overlooking merit, and lack of transparency (built in the name of privacy).

As a male POC with experience across several banks, your mileage will vary by the department and team rather than the name of the bank itself. Banks are so large that they're basically little cities. You won't find distinct cultures outside of the aforementioned. What you can look for instead is support and representation for minorities further up the ladder at each.

I think it makes more sense to start with a short list of those you've received offers from instead of getting analysis on every bank. Are there offers from the three listed--any others?

JPM

Have colleagues at all BB banks and I’d say I know the most WPOCs at GS/JPM/MS. Regardless though of what you look like on the outside and your background they’ll work you to the bone [and if they could reincarnate your bones into a skeleton would make that skeleton work].

To provide context I am looking to move to industry and wants an inclusive bank that supports women leaders. I have a very deep and strong background in FS. I am also extremely driven and resilient and have the sheer doggedness it takes to lead a business or bank. Based on past staffing assignments I like MS, and Deutsche Bank. DB is not doing too well in the US. Citi seems to have a lot of women in Consumer Banking.

OP my neighbor is an exec at BoA and is involved in a lot of high level women’s leadership initiatives there and while on occasion we joke about some bull headed men she comes across, in general she really loves their culture. For context, she has a PhD in women’s leadership studies so she’s not uninformed.

JPM is a great organization to work for. Highly recommend.
