    I have been working at Yorkshire Building Society full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fantastic people, really friendly and you do feel that you work for a mutual. Definitlley being a building society is a big plus, and really proud of the business for coming through the financial crisis stronger than most.

    Cons

    Work load really high due to sucesssion of mergers and sometimes you feel like your chasing your tail and not making headway. This causes frustration across the business. Fragmented communication can be an issue not just trying to work cross functionally but also within my department. A lot of change is taking place which does mean that things are slightly unsure, I am trusting the business to do the right thing as they haven't let me down as yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business needs to be structured in a way that allows staff to make a difference and offer the best for our customer.
