    I have been working at Leeds Building Society full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It truly values its people, and it comes from the very top of the organization. It doesn’t just have values written on its website, it lives by them, makes decisions by them. It offers every one an opportunity to be brilliant at their job, have a go at a new opportunity. It is a big community with a big heart spread out across the UK. It is thoughtful in how it does business and it makes sound decisions about its future keeping its customers at its heart always, like I’ve rarely seen before.

    Cons

    Like any large organization it has many established processes that need changing, modernising, and some of the tech software is in need of updating.
