    I have been working at Santander full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    During my time at Santander lots has changed but you get a feeling that this is being done for the right reasons and I have been supported through these. The advice, help and support they have given during Covid-19 has been fantastic. This has meant I've been able to balance my work and home life better than I thought. I have been able to support my children with school work and my partner with balancing their work load as well. The company is really looking at how best to support and update us through an extremely difficult time in circumstances that change almost daily and I really feel they are putting people first. Using platforms such as Microsoft teams, Zoom etc have really helped us to stay connected and still have that personal touch and this has been demonstrated from Exec level down. The well-being of our people seems to be real priority now and its welcomed. Whilst there is sadly lots of things happening in the world currently, the support we are receiving and the support we are giving our customers , really does make me feel proud to work here.

    Cons

    At times if there is an easy way to do something, we will find the opposite more challenging way to do it. Covid has shown we can do things quickly and its a shame it has taken such an event to accelerate some of these practices. We still have lots of processes and policies (as you would expect in a highly legislated sector) which could be simpler but I know these are being worked on.
