    I have been working at Scottish Widows full-time

    Pros

    Good Staff Benefits, umbrella company, various locations in the UK.

    Cons

    Salary not good compared to the market, being a bigger company opportunities are many but competition is rigid and bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    A leader pull from the front and manager pushes from back. Please make your managers the leaders, teach them to be fair and unbiased.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Scottish Widows (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied externally through agency. First step was to send C.V after that followed phone interview. Phone interview when through asking employment history and then moving to STAR questions. After that followed face to face interview which was same sort of question just more detailed.
