    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Great benefits, mundane work

      Pros

      Pension is fantastic. Management (from my experience) seem genuinely keen to help you develop yourself. Understanding/flexible when it comes to personal issues

      Cons

      Lots of change that isn't always communicated clearly - easy to get tripped up Telephony work is incredibly mundane, easy to fall into a routine of not working on your own development Work/life balance is fairly poor, flexibility with shifts seems to be less common nowadays

      Pros

      Fellow staff members, I've met some of the best people working here. Highly skilled, motivated, funny. Just a shame most of them get grinded down to a shadow of themselves by the business.

      Cons

      Management seem obsessed with reducing staff levels of teams to the lowest they can possibly run at. Resulting in increased stress and workload for the remaining staff. Management have no understanding of what work-life balance is and will expect you to work excessive hours to hit targets.
