    I worked at LCH.Clearnet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can get the same exposure to financial services that you get in an Investment Bank, but in a much smaller company. This means flatter hierarchy, you can get easier more responsibilities and you can get to talk to C-level managers.

    Cons

    The infrastructure and the teams supporting it is very archaic. In IT, a modern version control system, continuous integration, and the release management, are defined for a waterful approach. This doesn't fit with the current much more competitive market of clearing houses, and with the latest volume and speet of regulatory changes.
    The teams supporting the process and the tools are resistant to changes, being managed by old permanent staff that are afraid of them, and probably not even able to support a different approach.

    Change Management is a beast that hides under the compliance and regulations rules to push back everything they can. Often on the basis of red tape impediments.

    Salaries and bonuses are much less than elsewhere in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Renovate!
    Review the Change Management procedures. It takes just too long to deliver anything.
    Upgrade the infrastructure and the tools supporting the development teams, getting rid of all staff that are not able to keep up with the changes in the industry.
    Valorise the good staff, keep them offering wages and bonuses in line with the market.
