    I have been working at FCA full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance and a very collegiate place to work
    The organisation is generally very supportive of your development and will offer a lot in terms of training, courses, and industry qualifications

    Cons

    Flat hierarchy and low attrition means internal progression is slow and can be bias towards external candidates depending on the division
    Often frustrating to just get the job done: a lot of bureaucracy at every stage

    Advice to Management

    Set a long term plan and stick to it: so much of what we do is reactive and has little relation to our strategic priorities.

    I have been working at FCA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working
    Great people
    Interesting and varied work
    Great HoDs

    Cons

    There needs to be clearer lines of responsibilities between the pay grades (often Reg B's are doing Reg C work etc. with no reward or recognition)

    People management is varied across the organisation

    There is a clear message from management to help career development but in practice management don't encourage staff.

    HR - good luck to anyone in the recruitment process. I had to complete 300 words, 1 case study and 3 interviews for an internal lateral move! #excessive.

    There is no consistency across the FCA

    We often hold firms to account for poor governance/oversight/systems and controls/accountability etc. but fail to implement the same standards internally.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much talent and drive in the building - don't take it for granted.
