    Run.... run for your lives!

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsSome very friendly people
    Good benefits - particularly the health insurance
    Good location

    ConsHighly political atmosphere
    Some extremely incompetent people in senior positions who seem to weather every storm just because their 'face fits'.
    Compliance culture is very poor - just a tick box exercise that is veiwed as a necessary evil. Very poor compliance culture.
    HR is useless if you have any serious issues - complaints are swept under the carpet and there is one person who is famous for never answering emails or her phone. If you need to speak to her, you have to call someone sitting near her to see if she's in and actually go up to see her!
    Very poor bonuses and pay increases, unless you are a broker making big £££ for the company.
    IT is not great and can be very frustrating

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't know where to start...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people to work with

    Developer, Enterprise Technology Group (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly, and largely non-political atmosphere.
    Stable, not-too-competitive working environment.
    Good people to work with generally.
    Plenty of scope to change roles and move around within the company if you want to.
    Good work-life balance, if that's a priority.
    Salary rates are decent. Not the best around but above average.

    ConsSlow decision making sometimes.
    Poor office environment/facilities.
    Career progression can feel a little slow.
    Some frustration due to inefficient processes that sometimes result in slow resolution of problems or inability to move a project forward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get rid of some of the "red tape". Tasks frequently take much longer and a lot more effort than they should due to inefficient processes and lack of access.
    Get out of your offices and talk to people. Town Halls are not a great way to communicate.

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