    Pros

    Flexible working Good working environment Good recognition Car park

    Admin heavy Some of the management don’t reflect the ethos of the company Although home working is allowed this is minimal. They could do with listening to individuals requirements and not having it as one rule fits all

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

    Pros

    Flexible working, you can work from home 1 day a week. Very laid back and casual dress code despite being a bank.

    Cons

    Obsolete equipment and firewall make it almost impossible to perform at your best. Lack of organisation and project management. A lot of projects are chaotic and there is no clear indication of roles and responsibilities. The company prefer to hire internally rather than look outside in order to bring in the best talent. This way you end up having colleagues that cannot really do their job, because management tends to accommodate requests for internal moves. People get promoted more because they've been there long enough rather than because they have the right skills. No money for new hires (at least in my department). Not only do they not hire new people despite being understaffed, also people who leave do not get replaced easily. The whole building is overcrowded. Bathrooms always busy and not enough desks. There is a hot desk policy so you never know if and where you're going to be sitting. I hope you like working from the cafeteria. Salaries are lower than in other banks.
