    Former Employee - Insurance Manager

    I worked at HBOS full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Edgy
    Pushes boundaries
    Going places
    Place to build a career.
    Career development is taken seriously, a lot of opportunities for the right people to move quickly with a lot of support and development.

    Cons

    Too risky some would say!
    Unfortunately tainted by the financial crisis. I think it's important to note that a lot of the HBOS values live on within LBG and the new combined company is a great place to be.
