      Pros

      One of the few banks who don’t enforce targets, all they expect is for you to connect with customers and have a conversation regardless of the outcome. They’re very understanding when it comes to life events and have loads of support available. Lots of areas to progress. You’ll enjoy it if you enjoy being a people person

      Cons

      The work environment really depends on the manager you get, thankfully I haven’t had too many bad experiences. Job can get repetitive.
