I worked at Yorkshire Building Society

Pros

Reasonable salaries and benefits.
Nice coffee in the canteen.

Cons

Crap location, miles out of town, with nothing to do at lunchtime. OK if you travel to work via the motorway (M62), but not if you have to drive home via Bradford centre.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff, and stop growing so fast. All the fun is disappearing as acquisition after acquisition is chased. It's not fun to work there any more.

    I worked at Yorkshire Building Society full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good location in the centre of Bradford city centre for the headquarters. Nice office and coffee machines etc. However, not much more besides to brag about unfortunately.

    Cons

    Severe lack of talent. I've worked at other financial institutions, but the staff at Yorkshire Building Society are casual and care-free. Many of them have been there for years and are just in their jobs because they are part of the furniture. I worked in the complaints department and customers were treated terribly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more consideration for customers. Your process mean nothing when customers are often treated horrendously. Your regular IT issues make life hell for both staff and savers.
