      Pros

      Really varied work, opportunities to expand one’s own skill set and technical expertise, great work life balance, colleagues are dedicated to their work, and a general sense that work serves a greater social purpose.

      Compensation package has deteriorated significantly due to the recent scrapping of bonuses and various other benefits by new executive management. This has led to resourcing issues and low staff morale. Executive management do not appear to have much trust in their employees, do not appear to have regard for the FCA culture they have inherited.
