    I worked at Royal London full-time

    Pros

    Great for work/life balance, facilities in the workplace are good. Varied opportunities for those who wish to take them up

    Cons

    Should be more top down management - to embed processes and procedures - no one will conform if they are not told to. Important processes should be built into objectives. The lack of this makes BAU very difficult to achieve, when you rely on other departments to conform

    Thanks for taking the time to contribute your review of working at Royal London which is very much appreciated. It sounds like you found that the procurement team was having trouble getting traction in some parts of the organisation and I think this is fair comment. We are working on aligning objectives and processes to remedy this but our culture isn't all command and control / top down. We believe in treating people like adults and explaining why it's important to work closely with procurement as well as put the controls in place. JFDI isn't the way we do things.

    Thank you for your feedback. It's great to see you mentioning many of our employee benefits as positives. I'm sorry you felt some of our HR processes are overly complicated and we're not getting reward right. We want everyone at Royal London to feel rewarded and recognised for the work they do and we want to make sure we provide as many progression opportunities available to our people as possible. I would love to chat to you about this to understand your experience.
