      Pros

      There were a some nice colleagues who made it bearable.

      Cons

      The systems were absolutely dire, always apologising to customers for the atrocious website. Extremely scripted, robotic, repetitive job that is soul destroying because there's no incentive or remuneration. The pay is poor compared to other financial services companies. The management was really unprofessional and had little skill. Glued to screens until KPIs were out then you'd hear about it. Absolutely no development. Dead end job and there's nothing stimulating or rewarding about it. If you have any health issues, don't expect there to be any leeway. Cliquey. Blame culture with a pass the buck mentality.

      Pros

      The management and business partners were terrific. Very understanding and supportive. I was in charge of one of the employee engagement initiatives. The experience landed me a nice gig with KPMG.

      Cons

      Working hours not as flexible as they could be. Pretty much a Monday-Saturday 9 to 6 job.
