      Good for British, terrible for foreigners

      Jan 8, 2021 - Analyst in London, England, England

      Pros

      - Decent salary according to market standards - Work-life balance

      Cons

      I had to leave because during pandemic Lloyds treated us unfairly and they didn't care about our mental health. - They fired 3000 people giving them really short notice. - They cut bonuses, but not for all of us. - No career progression. They don't promote people fairly. - They say they want diversity but they didn't let foreigners work from their home country. A few more senior colleagues though spent months abroad without any issue. If you are non British and you want some flexibility, at least for short term, don't choose Lloyds. Also, work is so repetitive and you cannot make a difference in there. Stakeholders never accept yours solutions and your work is wasted. If you want bureaucracy and slow progression choose Lloyds. Otherwise, stay away!
