      Pros

      Good culture and working environment ensures different teams within the bank collaborate successfully on a day to day basis, supportive management

      Cons

      Emphasis on time in title frustrates people, although there has been focus on internal mobility from management there is still room for improvement.

      Pros

      - Easy life, work-life overly balanced to life (not gonna complain) - Good gym at work - Friendly people

      Cons

      - Promotion process is political. doesn't matter how well you perform - the person joined before you needs to be promoted before you....lead to the question of why trying hard? Would be great for individuals that want a stable, orderly career, where you will get at least 1 promotion in your life time(because they need to promote your performing subordinate that's behind you in the queue) - internal mobility is hard. They rather hire someone younger than you externally, than mobiling someone with relevant experience. (Been asked of my age at internal mobility interviews) - pay structure is lose, guidelines from HR not adhered by management.

      "CFO Division"

      May 5, 2016 - Anonymous Employee

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Reasonable starting salary. Obviously the name looks good, no matter your experience/what you do there. Good colleagues on the whole, most people are friendly and will help. Some idiots though. Fairly interesting work, and enough of it Reasonable hours, only the very occasional overtime requirement (this is however specific to my role, could be worse in other depts.)

      Cons

      Promotion process is strange - seems to be at the whim and mercy of the central promotions board, you also need an excellent network, which takes time to build up. Salary does not move in line with market rate (even when you are promoted). Virtually impossible to ask for a payrise. Internal mobility prospects are appalling, in part due to the restructure but it also feels as if they don't want people to move from their current roles. Complete lack of formal training - everything is on the job, which means people don't develop the same skillset (depending on how they are taught) Can be hard to network, simply because it is such a big org and people are so busy, so you can feel isolated initially. Also limited social opportunities make relationship building hard too. Variable pay is shocking - don't count on anything.
