    Enjoyable but robotic

    Customer Advisor (Current Employee)

    ProsThe area that I work has a supportive environment. There scope to move up the ladder and the director has open-door policy and encourages positive and negative feedback.

    ConsThe productivity targets are based on numbers only and not customer service. The job can be robotic and employees feel undervalued.

    Overworked & underrated.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHighly able workforce.
    Bank holidays off work

    ConsOverworked.
    Less bonus than other banks.
    Fragmented departments due to many mergers affect prospects of promotion & also make simple tasks often complex.
    Outdated systems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR should not use recruitment bans, overworked, under resourced staff are the reason why customer service at Santander is shocking!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good for a few years, but not long term

    Database Administrator (Former Employee)
    Leicester, England (UK)

    ProsA good place to work if you have children as most areas are prepared to accept a degree of flexible working. However, this focus on family comes at the expense of many hard working staff members without family who genrally have to work much harder to facilitate this.

    ConsGlass ceilings inmost areas given a high level of long serving staff taking top positions.
    Morale is poor in many areas within head office in Leicester, where bonuses are only available above a certain grade. However, i worked in an area where some people got a bonus , some didnt - even though the job is exactly the same, just down to inconsistent grading. This was very wrong, and i was one of the lucky ones to get a bonus - imagine how everyone else felt!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBase rewards on ability and delivery, not length of service

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
