    I worked at Bank of England

    Pros

    Professional Staff Excellent training Interesting work Sense of working for an organisation with an important task and significant impact

    Cons

    Slow moving and bureaucratic. This is in some ways by necessity. It's not appropriate to make big decisions as a public institution without proper due diligence. But does this mean that decisions are only taken after having gone through 4-5 levels of committees. Each requiring a new summary paper. limited opportunity for creativity

    Advice to Management

    Work out how to streamline decision making process and deliver on ambitions to ensure that more decisions can be taken at a lower level without constant need for senior level sign-off
