    Cons

    Not good atmosphere in retail banking with the number of staff reduced and excessive workload for the remaining.
    No salary increases to differentiate cashier pay and adviser pay as both classed as Band 1. Expected to take on responsibilities for cluster not just the branch without any pay benefits. They recruit other staff to same role on much higher salary (+10k).
    Empty promises when discussions with management for progression expected to act new roles and then when timeframe finished told roles doesn't exist or no opportunities available.
