    I have been working at Financial Ombudsman Service full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company has the best people, great opportunities for personal development, and in my own experience, brilliant support from managers. Couldn't really ask for much more.

    Cons

    Yes, there are some changes going on, as there are in every company. I've worked for other firms that treat their staff terribly. I feel this company treats their staff pretty well. Yes, maybe the recent changes could have been rolled out better. But at the end of the day they had to be rolled out.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management are starting to listen to staff a bit better. But at the end of the day - they've got to do what they've got to do. This is a business. People will only write on Glassdoor if they're not satisfied. So I'd urge others who work here to share their feedback, whether they're happy or not.
