    I worked at Royal London full-time

    Pros

    Nice office environment and friendly colleagues

    Cons

    The money is absolutely atrocious for this day and age, not a living wage at all. Expected to learn a lot and work extremely hard for £15,000 a year. The training is poor, you're expected to know what you're doing with little to no support and it was extremely disheartening. I can imagine some roles are better than others, but across the board pay is much lower than other companies for similar roles. Further to this you're expected to go to meetings about how well the company is doing and how much profit has been made in that quarter, when you're sitting there earning minimum wage! Whole company cares about making money but doesn't treat staff fairly. Absolutely dreaded going to work.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the training, boost staff morale and for goodness sake pay the staff a fair wage before investing millions in a new office!!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal London (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was brief and focused around the role specific skills and organisational fit. Some questions were competency based, like 'Describe the time where you had to manage stakeholder expectations', other questions were more focused around technical skills and past experiences. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly - made me feel at ease.
