    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      Really interesting and important work. Collaborative and supportive environment. Flexible working that supports work/life balance. Andrew Bailey is the best Governor during my 25 plus year career.

      Cons

      Although improving and recognition that things need to get better, the Bank needs to make further progress on diversity and inclusion. The Governor and other top management are actively engaged in this matter.
