I have been working at Metro Bank full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There is a strong emphasis on a really positive culture at Metro. People really do try to help each other out.

Cons

It’ll finding its feet with some processes, but there’s a real push for continuous improvement. It’s great to be a part of helping develop the bank!

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing!

    I have been working at Metro Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great colleagues
    - Great senior leadership team
    - Great working environment
    - Good amount of independence to perform day to day tasks.
    - Always compensated for extra costs incurred due to the job.
    - AMAZEING vision

    Cons

    - Working in a store there is almost zero work life balance and the shift patterns can really mess with your body clock leaving you warn out.
    - Can easily end up working 7 days in a row and not being allowed to take the time back due to "business need" regardless of how tired you are.
    - Store politics when it comes to progressing, leaving colleagues feeling deflated and demotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Love the job and the company, only complaint is the lack of work/life balance for store colleagues and the store politics around progression.
