    Pros

    colleagues are willing to help. work life balance.

    Cons

    you have to use your own time to get ready before branch opens and finish up after branch closes. It's about half an hour per day. sometimes can be longer if the last customer got lots of transactions to do or if the till is not balanced. And they don't count as working time.

    I worked at Lloyds Banking Group for less than a year

    Pros

    I completed 2 internships at Lloyds, one in corporate affairs and one in markets. My team were great in both internships. Lloyds has a good amount of investment in its people, and the atmosphere is usually very nice but can be team dependent (as with any company). During the internship program you join alongside many other interns (Lloyds takes all its interns in at once, over the summer). Accommodation paid for. Great cities to work in (London, Bristol, Edinburgh). Overall very pleasant experience

    Cons

    Slow to change. I think this is because the company is so large and imagine it would be similar at other companies too. This is a mild annoyance at worst though, doesn't really impact day to day work. Work life balance really depends on your department and whether there are deadlines. My entire internship in markets was not great for work life balance but this is very typical of market roles across all financial services. You will know this if you're interested in working in financial markets. Some bad locations (halifax) but most are good (see pros)
