    Pros

    - employee centric organisation - strong policies (expected of an organisation of this scale) - strong desire to be the leading digital bank in the marketplace will give you ample opportunities to be involved in challenging projects - enough tools available in the bank to help you learn and grow - flexible working - good rewards and recognition culture (but like anywhere else can be perception led)

    Cons

    - being 350 years old, bureaucracy is engrained in the banks way of working - the security standards in the bank are way toopp ancient and restrictive, and can prove to be frustrating if you are trying to deliver something innovative - a very traditional method of investing in the professional growth of employees, just exploring new tools but no thought process - subpar compensation as compared to market - no support for WFH during pandemic except for a monitor, chair and a keyboard / mouse. Expects the employees to fund their own WFH.
