    Pros

    LBG are a good employer for Women. I started my career at LBG returning to work after the birth of my son. I was a contractor. They took me on as perm even though I was pregnant with my second child. I've been supported by great line managers and now have a flexible jobshare role, which means I can balance home life with work.

    Cons

    Terrible for redundancy management. They need to speed up processes. Currently the process drags on for months resulting in demoralised and deflated workforce.

    Advice to Management

    There is still a level of understanding around maternity leave and pay that needs to be explained to some senior leaders and the HR advice provision isn't always the best. The diversity training is also somewhat lacking, but on the whole, my experience has been really positive. A testament to the ethos of the company and the line managers I've had

    Wonderful company to work for, great benefits and you get treated like an adult(not a child).

    Salary is not competitive and very limited opportunities to progress in recent times(jobs very few and far in between with hundreds of people going for them). A lot of structural changes which affect employees
