      Pros

      Everyone is friendly, supportive and willing to spend time helping others. The company cares about its customers and you can clearly see that the chief officers care too. This flows down through the organisation. Flexible environment, good benefits and lots of internal moves and promotions

      Cons

      As with many older companies, it can be difficult to implement change. Things can take a bit longer than you'd like but you get there eventually.

      Pros

      - Incredible work life balance and flexibility, especially for a financial institution - A 'human' place to work, really nice people - Increasing focus on development. This will be manager dependent but for me this has been great. - Competitive bonus scheme

      Cons

      - Struggle to think of any on the day-to-day, could argue the company is less competitive versus the big banks, both on pay and in volume markets

      Pros

      Great training and development, invested time in you, plans for progression. Get to work if different branches if you wanted to.

      Cons

      Everything scripted, felt like a robot. Pay wasn’t great for what you did. Bonus was a bit of a joke and at managers discretion.
