Approves of CEO

I have been working at Financial Conduct Authority full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits, inclusive environment, work life balance (most of the time)

Cons

Difficult to move jobs - competence based interviews, assessments - there seems to be little value placed on potential, experience or performance in current role.

Advice to Management

Make it easier for people to move departments or divisions - their experience is valuable surely. Find a way to better understand people's transferable skills. Assess people for their passion, performance in their current role, their ability to learn new things - must be better than utilising robotic competence questions which test peoples ability to answer a question but not their real skill level.
