    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Leeds Building Society full-time

    Pros

    Great team ethics, with few contractors to deal with. Leading to a quick turnaround of ideas.

    High CSR head space and events.

    Cons

    Uninspiring offices for someone who likes to look out the widow occasionally. Small village feel with legacy systems and relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Become agile across the whole business, and implement a model led by production not sales. Once you produce a great product then you can sell no matter what the competition does.

    Build niche markets and highly incentivise innovation in all sections of the business, but control risk via control of gating.
