Interesting place to work, but very very bureaucratic

London, England (UK)

I have been working at Financial Services Authority full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInsight into regulation
Contact with industry at a senior level
Influence future direction of industry (depending on role)
Supportive colleagues
Good benefits (aside from core salary)

ConsSalary not really competitive
Lots of process
Silo mentality can get annoying
Constant negativity from certain parts of industry (who should look in the mirror really)

Advice to Senior ManagementBreak down the silos
Keep your egos in check - the organisation's objectives are more important than your personal prejudices
