    Current Employee - B2B in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at NS&I

    Pros

    I've been here for a year - Great people, great opportunities

    It is a £100bn company with a head office of about 130 people - So when you are given a role, you really are given the opportunity to shine and be able to do things that you would not get the opprotunity to do elsewhere (where you'd be burried in the hierachy).

    Training is great and the feedback you get is mostly honest and clear - A great place to learn.

    Cons

    The salary can be a bit lower than the market, but the benefits are great and the work-life balance is really good.

    The small size doens lead to fewere opportunities for promotion, but it is a great way to add to your CV.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty risk averse in terms of leadership.
    The investment in motivation seems to be waining - but might just be the time of year!

    I have been working at NS&I full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is definately a family feel as the head office is a small. Management are supportive of training and accept that staff tunover is quite high as people get their exeperience and move on to higher paying jobs, in the regulated sector. However, flexible working, generous annual leave and pensions do make it worthwhile sticking around.

    Cons

    Being a civil service organisation, there is a fair bit of 'dead wood' and poor performance is not handled well. Additionally lots of red tape and salaries are only paid at 85% of the market median for the role.
