      Ok, but now acting like just another corporation

      Management is too corporate, no longer feels like a building society

    7. 4.0
      Former Employee

      Pleasant culture and well-intentioned colleagues.

      May 21, 2021 - Financial Analyst in Leeds, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Low stress environment, great offices, light on inter-departmental politics, flat heirarchy, well-intentioned colleagues, Mutual's ethos. With no shareholder pressures, the company has the financial leeway to enter some interesting areas (if they weren't facing competitor pressures in their core).

      Cons

      Lagging behind the market in key dimensions, slow at implementing, risk-averse DM'ing (governance and finance dominate). A hard worker can shine and gain wide experience, however that experience won't be at the leading-edge of retail FS.

      Pros

      Amazing colleagues, the Society cares about its staff

      Cons

      Salaries a little in the low side, but a very good pension, usual large company perks etc. They are flexible with work/life at Head Office although if you work in a branch obviously you have to be present.
