I have been working at Financial Conduct Authority full-time (More than a year)
Good opportunities for progression and to work in other departments. Great to network and meet and learn from others in different departments. If you want to, you can gain a lot of experience here. Great work life balance
Salary is considerably less than in industry and although the work life balance is good, some projects have been very intense and complex and this can lead to employees feeling undervalued
Advice to Management
Consider a means of paying staff in line with performance. I cant currently suggest anything else that I would advise the management
I have been working at Financial Conduct Authority full-time (More than 3 years)
Good people you work with.
9 to 5 Hours
Poor Team leaders who spend more time blaming you than fixing the issues
Poor overall management with poor communication between staff, team leaders and management.
Vindictive attitude to staff (Micro aggression, Micromanagement and Gas lighting)
Poor career progression and utilisation of talents with staff that leads to dead end feeling or finding others promoted or utilised without clear reason.
Care and concern of the mental and physical welling of the staff is sadly lacking and shows a major lack of empathy leading to escalations of issues in the workplace, this turns a already busy and stressful environment into a hostile one.
Staff are treated like a burden that the FCA needs to whip into shape but there is no end to this and you will quickly find that your always wrong by default. This leads to never feeling like you have achieved something even after many years.
Training is inconsistent both in information and distribution. meaning different information is passed to new people but is never trickled down to older staff.
Advice to Management
Focus on a more pragmatic approach to the job and focus on your assets in your staff. lose this and you will achieve nothing
