    Pros

    Flexible middle managers, ok work and life balance for some

    Cons

    There is no long term vision which is clearly communicated to staff who are given the responsibility of running key processes. Very output and process oriented, instead of focusing on hiring and retaining skilled staff members through a genuine effort to develop technical skills or a team-oriented enviornment. Pay bands are lower than competitors.

    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility is great for working parents or students. My manager was great professional but a great person too which kept the morale high. The Job itself is easy, the system does the conversions for you and there were a lot of Western Union customers. Great customers who tell you stories of their travels which makes the job great. You have freedom because you work alone in the bureau in most cases, no supervisors or anyone breathing down your neck

    Cons

    During the winter, the days can drag so bring in a book or something to keep you occupied. There can be scammers and money launderers trying to commit fraud so you have to have an eye open otherwise you could lose the company money. The work is very repetitive doing the same things every day can get tedious and boring after a while. Wage is average. Computer systems needs upgrading
