    Pros

    Well known brand in the market. You will have contact with experts in your area, including people who just joined from the HMRC. Work from home policy is generally okay, specially from manager level (more restricted to Seniors and below). Colleagues are usually nice, and stick together. You'd have a better experience if working for the Asset Management team or the Insurance team.

    Cons

    One of the most toxic environments I've ever seen. I worked most of the time with the Banking team. Both leaders are very complicated characters: I) one is absolutely bipolar and people are afraid to speak to him about his own projects as one never knows when he would shout at you or make a joke; ii) the other one is struggling to make partner and killing everything on his way. He has no respect at all for people's private life and free time, and absolutely delusional expectations that could only work out if you were a robot and had no need for sleeping or using the toilet - however they impose it as standard, making people feel bad about themselves on a constant basis. Sadly as it sounds, they are raising people in the team who follow the same mindset. At the senior consultant level, the rule is to play the manager role, deliver at the best quality but only charging half of your time and spending extra-time in the office to cover up for the time you could not charge, so we all burn out pretty quickly. Turnover rate in this team is ridiculous. Team shows no appreciation for the extra time dedicated, which they take for granted, specially if you're not married and do not have kids.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands on to make FS TP Banking a more enjoyable team to work with. Hire a partner or director who actually cares about the team and about developing people. Make people values effectively count for something.
