      Pros

      Pretty safe job, if you are on a permanent contract; good experience, some good people working here, hybrid/remote/flexible work allowed.

      Cons

      No pay rise, staff continuously penalised for the previous recession by not allowing official Bank Christmas parties or any other events for the benefit of the staff (what the public would say!), no bonuses, no private health insurance, very limited opportunities for progress due to constant automation and outsourcing, terrible outdated IT systems. Often used by talented individuals to get a couple of years of experience into their cv, then run to another company for better conditions.
