    I worked at Skipton Building Society full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The fact Skipton is a mutual with its members at its heart means it's got a slightly different mindset from corporates who are there to service the shareholders (who aren't always the customer). It gives you the feeling you're genuinely on the side of your customers.

    Cons

    The exec team have to get the balance between putting customers first and being a profitable business. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes they don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the staff more to help them understand the bigger picture for how and why decisions have been made.
