    I have been working at Tesco Bank

    Pros

    Great people and fun place to work with strong values. Company which genuinely cares for it's people. No targets for individuals they just want you to do the right thing for the customer. Lots of things organised in work e.g. Strawberry's and cream during Wimbledon and an advent calendar draw with some cracking prizes at Christmas and good sense of community with most teams meeting up outside work too.

    Cons

    Location would be better if it was in the center of Newcaste

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Tesco Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great people and interesting opportunities Nice mix of financial services and retail

    Cons

    The retail side of the business sometimes doesn't appreciate what's involved with the financial services side (but then it's probably the same the other way round!)

    I worked at Tesco Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people and the potential is there for the Tesco Values to really drive change but it has to be implemented at all levels throughout the bank.

    Cons

    The lack of applying the Tesco Values. They were aptly described as values that should act as a moral compass on the decision making in the bank. Too few Senior Managers/Leaders applied them in their decision making and working there felt more like a typical RBS subsidiary. The benefits are not as competitive compared to competitors.

    Pros

    Some great people at a low level that keep the company going.

    Cons

    some awful people in team leader positions that hindre the company, they blagged a job by talking a good job and then cannot deliver and wander around drinking cost coffee and going to 'meetings'. The management dont listen to staff concerns i.e wages, shifts and the results of the annual survey (pen pushing exercise) are just swept under the carpet.
