    A decent bank to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe bank offers a good and varied training program, and encourages and provides options for internal mobility.

    ConsSome of the systems are poor. Hours are long, and staff turnover in certain areas is high, resulting in a lot of disruption.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffshoring policies should be thought out more carefully. Roles that were offshored to Singapore on the basis of cost are now being returned to London, as Singapore has become too expensive.

    Well managed bank where all employees are driven to continue the firm's success.

    Operations Analyst (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- Driven and easy to work with (on the whole) workforce
    - Well managed
    - Internal mobility encouraged, not frowned against
    - Opportunities to shine at lower levels

    Cons- Challenging environment not suitable for everyone
    - As with many other banks, compensation has decreased while efficiency expectations have increased

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not over deploy to low cost centres as it will hurt the firms performance. Continue to close the rift between front and back office.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
