"Safe and reasonable if you're willing to put in the work"

  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Project Manager in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
Current Employee - Project Manager in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

I have been working at Lloyds Banking Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Reasonably secure despite market. Pay has been upgraded recently at manager / associate director level. Decent perks & holidays. For a PM there is generally flexibility on working hours, location etc.

Cons

Pay is still lower than some of the competition - be prepared for a consultant reporting to you on twice your salary (not contractor). There are definite differences between the divisions & roles in terms of expectation and reward. Flexibility is a strength but too much still depends on local managers expectations / bias.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing but it will take a while to earn trust. There is a lot of change fatigue - consider it non-critical changes could be phased to avoid disengagement, particularly organisational change.

    Pros

    Good working environment in IT area and can be a good package if you are considered to be an above average performer

    Cons

    Bloated appraisal process that isn't as objective as it pretends to be; laddering takes place but management denies that it does or isn't very open about it!
    Outsourcing IT to India
    Complex IT environment as a result of multiple mergers

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lloyds Banking Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    wok/life balance, the strong sense of camaraderie amongst the team members. Had a good standing in the community because so many local people used this particular branch.

    Cons

    tedious nature of work in retail banking resulted in the branch having a serious attitude towards hitting targets. Not hitting targets was not well-tolerated, and they were usually set quite high.
