    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lloyds Banking Group

    Pros

    There were a couple of really good people who obviously cared about what they were doing and were talented. Unfortunately these are not the people that get promoted to management

    Cons

    Neopotism. My line manager was employed because she was friends with her manager. She obviously didn’t know how to do anything her role specified. I was forced to work 12 hour days while my manager took regular gym breaks during the day. I ended up having to be signed off by my doctor and there was no support when I returned. There is an intense bullying culture and the policies in place to stop it happening don’t work. Management only looks after management, particularly as they’re all friends. A couple of people raised complaints about the bullying I experienced but this was completely ignored. There is a constant threat of redundancy and once a quarter they have what is colloquially known as cut day where they get rid of people then expect you to pick up the extra work
