      Work Life Balance and a Fantastic Group of People

      Pros

      Great work-life balance with Friday 2pm finishes, coming from an organization where there was an expectation you would work regular long hours it’s a pleasant surprise to see more than lip service paid to “working to live”. A lot of work has gone into developing a career framework, improving compensation and providing opportunity for internal growth. Recently named the fastest growing fintech in the UK and secured significant funding to expand abroad so many exciting challenges ahead. Like any relatively young organization there are a lot of options to fast track your career if you have the drive and skills to do so. An excellent engineering team who are very approachable and keen to share knowledge and support more inexperienced team members. Working in a high volume, 24x7 critical system environment. Good remuneration for on-call Remote-first but with office space in Bristol and London for those that want to use it. Provision of home office equipment. Quarterly in person social events

      Cons

      Like any organization going through rapid growth there is always a lot to do, many competing priorities and coupled with a highly regulated environment this won’t be for everyone. Like any organization within banking there is a fair amount of baggage that comes with it but it also provides an opportunity to approach problems with an automation/technology first mindset.

      The work can be very fast-paced which isn't everyone's cup of tea. This is the nature of a start-up bank with a lot of enthusiasm and ambition

      Pros

      Smart colleagues and smart tech choices. Great culture and work life balance.

      Pay can be on the low end and company direction is unclear at times. Priorities seem to change quite often, occasionally abandoning projects or favouring speed over quality.

      Good place to work but not that great with work/life balance

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Plenty of good developers to grow with and learn new things from. The product and code are constantly evolving.

      Cons

      Although the teams are provided with various work-life balance opportunities such as working from home or even remote working from another country for up to 30 days per year it is overshadowed by the constant pressure of needing to work out of office hours to improve. You are required to be in a constant state of improvement which is tracked by senior management and working out of office hours to improve on your individual skills (only if they benefit the company) is something that is never spoken openly about but rather quietly enforced. Self-improvement during office hours has been "tried" before and it was apparently not working so they decided to move it to out of hours. This makes an otherwise good company a pretty difficult working place because of the constant stress of meeting the overshadowing eyes expectations.
