    I have been working at Bank of England full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good level of responsibility Good support network Flexible Working Opportunities for development

    Cons

    None - I think this was a great place for an industrial placement. However going forward salaries can be lower than private companies but this is balanced by an excellent work/life balance.

    Pros

    You can easily see where your work is making a difference and you are given the freedom to explore your own work path. It also has a great work/life balance with the use of flexible time across most departments.

    Cons

    When compared to other employers you are not paid anywhere near the same if you were to work in the private sector.

    I worked at Bank of England for more than a year

    Pros

    -very inclusive and supportive of staff as an institution. -lots of opportunities to meet other teams, attend seminars. -generally provide good system for allowing placement students to meet each other. -flexible and reasonable working hours.

    Cons

    -pay is not great for London, the fact that placements only last a year means nobody exists to argue for pay increase on behalf on placement students, seem to be somewhat forgotten and left behind in terms of pay. -Very archaic management process, leaves your experience very much up to chance as to whether you can do well. -Very different expectations of students in different areas. HR probably need to do more... detailed research into what areas expect from students and if the team is suitable to get a placement student.
