    I worked at Ulster Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I worked with great colleagues in a busy team and department. I enjoyed the fixed hours and holiday allowance. The staff benefits were excellent e.g. pension, healthcare, mortgage. There was flexible working including remote working from home. Some roles are flexible working hours too.

    Cons

    When I first started working in the bank there were many layers of management and over the years these were reduced. This had a negative impact as many people had been in their roles for 5 years or more with no opportunity for career progression. If new posts came up they preferred to recruit externally than promote internally. I left as there were increasing restructures which also meant fatigue and low morale in the organisation.
