    I have been working at Yorkshire Building Society part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would say this is truly amazing company to work for! And I am dead serious! Great benefits, lovely people and this is really great employer to work for!

    Cons

    Salary is way too low for the job.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more aware of procedures and policies as you do rely on human resources way too much. Get more managerial training - otherwise you all are brilliant and great people too!

    Pros

    Fantastic people, really friendly and you do feel that you work for a mutual. Definitlley being a building society is a big plus, and really proud of the business for coming through the financial crisis stronger than most.

    Cons

    Work load really high due to sucesssion of mergers and sometimes you feel like your chasing your tail and not making headway. This causes frustration across the business. Fragmented communication can be an issue not just trying to work cross functionally but also within my department. A lot of change is taking place which does mean that things are slightly unsure, I am trusting the business to do the right thing as they haven't let me down as yet.

    Advice to Management

    The business needs to be structured in a way that allows staff to make a difference and offer the best for our customer.

    Pros

    Reasonable salaries and benefits. Nice coffee in the canteen.

    Cons

    Crap location, miles out of town, with nothing to do at lunchtime. OK if you travel to work via the motorway (M62), but not if you have to drive home via Bradford centre.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, and stop growing so fast. All the fun is disappearing as acquisition after acquisition is chased. It's not fun to work there any more.

    Cons

    Upon completion of CIMA programme (roughly 3 years) the salary will only be £29,000

    Advice to Management

    Augmentez le salaire de base pour attirer les meilleurs employés
