  1.  

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

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Edinburgh, Scotland

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

  2.  

    In IT area, good opportunities but not if you're a programmer due to outsourcing

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people more
