Pros

talented people and good assets

Cons

Poor processes and lack of agility

    Pros

    1. Work life balance is more possible to manage than in IB.
    2. Industry salaries but on a higher than industry level.
    3. Not a competitive environement between colleagues and relatively good job safety.

    Cons

    1. Very process driven and buraucratic organisation.
    2. Career progression is not structured.
    3. Very stong UK culture - if you are a foreigner that might considerably slow down your possibility to grow and be promoted.
    4. Limited career opportunties

  2. Positive, even if I believe that the company sometimes lacked long-term view
