What are the best and worst things about your company?
The fact that it is a Partnership - has a very different feel to most other organisations. There is a genuine passion for the business's success and excellent service to customers. The nature of the company means that change is sometimes slow.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Ethos. Support from within the branch. Benefits - bonus, holidays, leisure. Graduate Scheme structure and support very poor. Lack of progression opportunities as a graduate - the business is consolidating positions at senior levels and has recruited too many graduates. Has over promised and under delivered in terms of graduate programme.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Amazing company - the Patnership structure is fantastic and gives a real sense of community. Also I get a lot of exposure to a lot of different areas of the business.Roles are very hit and miss - people move around the business all of the time so it's not always stable. Also the pay is not very competitive for top grads.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Exposure to senior leaders, experience in different business areas. You can not progress any faster than anyone else in your cohort, everyone moves on at the same rate which can feel quite limiting.
