      Pros

      There are some great people that work there A very interesting industry to work in Great staff events & effort is made to put on drinks / lunches etc Some of the leadership team is great, down to earth

      Cons

      This company is not a leading fintech - the data and systems are ancient/ non existent which is surprising in such a profitable business. Poor work life balance and there are some old school views around flexibility & wellbeing. There are some challenging, (mostly) male personalities that can behave in a way that is just inappropriate in this day and age - blow ups / yelling at their staff / being arrogant, overly direct & confrontational / talking down to you in areas of your expertise. A lot of disrespectful nonsense is tolerated because these people are in senior positions & have been in the industry a long time. This is not the place to work if you are planning a family soon, or have young children. There are many more flexible places to work. No job is worth your health & family time. A large portion of your pay is bonus based. This is mostly linked to how the company performs overall. If you sacrificed having a life and were a knock out performer, yet its a touch year for the financial markets - you won't get your bonus.
