    Pros

    Some really great people there, Get to start at 9, and finish at 5, and erm... that's about it

    Cons

    I work within Business Banking Direct, and the place has steadily deteriorated from a telephone based relationship management position, to a call centre. Though they pay lip service to things like customer service, the reality is that you're pushed to sell as much to each customer, to turn a complaint into a sales call. The incessant micro-managing and clique-y nature of senior management means progression is VERY difficult, unless you happen to be quite cosy with the team leaders or the senior management... real sad given the amount of natural talent in that place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the micro-managing, and give employees the freedom to actually do their job

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Reasonably secure despite market. Pay has been upgraded recently at manager / associate director level. Decent perks & holidays. For a PM there is generally flexibility on working hours, location etc.

    Cons

    Pay is still lower than some of the competition - be prepared for a consultant reporting to you on twice your salary (not contractor). There are definite differences between the divisions & roles in terms of expectation and reward. Flexibility is a strength but too much still depends on local managers expectations / bias.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing but it will take a while to earn trust. There is a lot of change fatigue - consider it non-critical changes could be phased to avoid disengagement, particularly organisational change.
