      Front office tech is political

      Pros

      Definitely a good place to start your career because of the name, people talk about the culture a lot but it's not all it seems. Good learning opportunities but little support for higher qualifications and a bit of a bullying atmosphere from senior management with clear favouritism.

      Cons

      Managers are highly involved with the politics and end of year reviews can often be based on personal opinions rather than professional merit based. There's a deep hierarchy rooted and everyone's really in it for themselves - nice on the outside but mean on the inside.

      Good if you prefer to be part of a global organisation and work with teams across the pond.

      Bad culture, political, very hierarchical, no integrity in the way business is conducted and people are treated with minimal transparency from senior management.
