No opinion of CEO

I worked at Standard Life full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Its in the middle of the city center so you get to see the Edinburgh castle all the time and have access to the city easily.
The people in the company are really nice and opportunities are available for improvement in your skills and knowledge

Cons

Not a lot I can think of. Except the cafeteria food is quite expensive and there tends to be company "rearranging" which sometimes end with people losing their jobs.

    I have been working at Standard Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly place to work
    Good bonuses if you do well
    Attractive pension scheme

    Cons

    Constant cuts make you worried that your department is next in line for "restructuring"
    The talk is all about the investment business but no real career path is given to move people over.

    Advice to Management

    Give some guarantees about what is happening to the life business - are you selling it or not? This "we'll see" does not give me any confidence about staying at Standard Life in the long term.
