    Pros

    Some teams have some real cultural challenges, that's true, and in some instances they've been going on too long. But it's not the same everywhere. There is a real cadre of people who have been here 20 years who want to tell us it's awful, but wouldn't leave for the world. They won't make any effort to push their careers forward and complain there's no career development. It's the risk of a provincial office. There are however some brilliant people here, some great opportunities if you make them happen, and a real will to do the right thing and be a different bank that runs through the business. Because there's a lot of development to do, if you show some skill and a good attitude you can get involved with projects you'd not have a chance of in bigger companies.

    Cons

    Still learning to be a FTSE business, the balance between being nimble and the need for sign off still needs work. The response to challenges is often just internal PR which is disappointing and a bit insulting at times. There're some personalities who are power hungry terrorists - only a couple, and you find them in any business, but they seem to be encouraged, oddly.

    Advice to Management

    You know where the problems are and who the political terrorists are, so stop waiting for them to fix themselves and stop promoting them. Everyone can see it and it undermines all the other great work.
