    Great place to work

    Manager (Current Employee) Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)

    ProsFantastic 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.

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

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

    They used to be fair and fun, but the new management are too big for their boots

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)

    ProsReasonable salaries and benefits.
    Nice coffee in the canteen.

    ConsCrap 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
