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.

    I worked at FCA full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance and flexible working on offer. Reputable company to have on your CV.
    Location is ok, although will shortly be moving to Stratford.

    Cons

    Minimal progression opportunities. Wasn’t prepared to sacrifice my integrity by “playing the game”.
    Pay is atrocious.
    So-called “Academy” is a complete waste of time and effort.
