      Pros

      Lots of opportunities. Good atmosphere.

      Pay increases don't happen when you move internally and you can end up being paid below your pay grade with no budget provided to your manager to correct this.

      I worked at Yorkshire Building Society Group full-time

      Pros

      Free parking at Head Office Nice working space Welcoming staff It used to be a great place to work but now feels like a sinking ship. Ive never worked in a place so negative with undervalued staff, mental health worries are high.

      Cons

      Continuously under restructure so very unstable work environment. They are not willing to fight for their loyal well experienced staff they once had. Job descriptions are not reflective of the actual work, especially in Financial Crime/Risk. Senior management do not take kindly to opinions even when asked for, it feels like they need to give lip service. No continuity or stability of role. Lack of training. Extremely...
