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.

    Pros

    The people who work at Standard Life make it what it is - truly great. All the way from top level right through the different departments, everyone is willing to help and share. This is extremely helpful as everyone is approachable and this makes it easier to learn and develop new skills, improve knowledge and replicate best practices.

    I know Standard Life are committed to my future as I am constantly challenged and I am given all the right tools I need to be successful. I am given the opportunity to learn and develop my personal skills as well as sit exams which will help my professional development.

    Cons

    The only down side I can think of working at Standard Life is the negativity of my friends towards me as they are jealous I enjoy coming to work!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to keep doing what you're doing, keep investing in young talent whilst looking after those who have been here since they can remember. You really have cracked the true value of the 'happy employee'.
