    3. 2.0
      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Below Industry Standards

      8 Apr 2021 - Portfolio Analyst in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good place to start for no finance experience, people are friendly, many functions/roles that are relaxed, work life balance

      Cons

      Salary and bonuses way below industry standards - even insulting at times. Cost cutting policies and no/slow career progression make people unhappy. People that want a challenge/progress will struggle. Overtime hours only rarely to be paid. Promotions mainly feasible if one is the manager's favorite or has an other job offer - salary raise not guaranteed. Performance reviews vague, no clear set targets, which also gives reason for no-promotions.
