    I have been working at Lloyd's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    working from home, flexible working

    Cons

    Stuck in the 1800's , slow to change, doesn't value their employees, treats employees like robots. Lack of diversity matches the 1800's. No work life balance. Or Career progression. Career development is non existent. Employees regularly working 12-14 hour days with disregard to their home situation. Don't waste your precious time/life/hard earned skills by working here. Go elsewhere with a modern fresh working environment and approach. Especially if you are a BAME person. Too many long service people stuck in their ways and resistant to change. Too much working like headless chickens. No ground direction from senior managers. No structure that aligns and acknowledges employees as human beings.

    I worked at Lloyd's full-time

    Pros

    The flex benefit system is good

    Cons

    Very old school. People turn a blind eye to bullying and unfair treatment of staff. Communication is awful between HR and teams. Things are brushed under the carpet. People are stuck in their ways and do not like change. They change their mind frequently and make things up as they go along. Bad bonus scheme

    Pros

    Exciting changes of an iconic historical organisation. Pleasant colleagues and varied work.

    Cons

    Benefits are not competitive compared to insurance companies. No car allowances and only 25 days annual leave (existing staff get 30) good pension contributions and life insurance and flexible working although technology is poor. You also need to provide your own personal mobile phone! The physical working environment is cold and austere - very male eg not enough ladies loos. It has a barbers but no hairdressers or beauty treatments
