Low pay and working with technically backwards long term members of staff make this a place to avoid. The pay for new members of staff either starts too low or never increases.

A very good place to work with Inteligent people and very interesting work. As expected in a bank the culture is quite risk adverse however due to the quality of the people this is quickly overcome and i would recommend working here.

Great place to work at, learnt a lot and many of the employees are very kind and helpful. The hardest part was meeting deadlines but the most enjoyable part was collaborating with others.

While at the Bank, you and your colleagues have a strong sense of purpose. Combine that with intellectually challenging tasks and collaborative work culture and you get a great place to work. The only downside is that things sometimes are a bit slow due to the hierarchical nature of the institution.

A great place to work where I made lots of friends who are very welcoming. Was able to undertake plenty of different roles that helped the bank in many different ways. Had very flexible and a wide ranging of times to work which was great for my personal situation.

i had worked at the bank of england for 2 weeks as it was set up by my secondary school, i had an amazing time and the employers where very friendly and welcoming. i learned that bank of england does not store our pounds as they need to keep it protected.

It was well organised and for the work experience. There were many different sections to the department I worked in, however each section had their own duties which helped us complete our work smoothly.

An elitist and archaic establishment, bloated with inept and failed finance people with over inflated egos and zero talent. Staggeringly arrogant management have such a high regard for themselves they neither understand nor care what happens in the wider financial industry. They are more focused on swerving responsibility and counting down the clock until they get their pensions. The building should be put to better use.

Spent two times as a temp here, only for limited roles. I highly enjoyed the time when I was there and I learnt a lot - they had e-learning courses I could do.

Also, it is very easy to get lost in the main building...

It is a place where people are proud to be able to work for such an institution. This pride can also bring a type of culture where people are looked down on.

A manager is always right in there. A manager can decide to spin any story to paint you in a bad light. Why not? Its the manager's word against yours.


If you are a person of color, you will need to understand your place and stay there in other to be able to continue receiving your paycheck.

On the whole a nice place to work however as exposure to senior staff increases the political games and practice of protect number one becomes evident
Pros
Good work life balance and good onsite facilities (gym/doctor/nurse/information centre/canteen)
Cons
Slow to change, a culture of blame has still not left the building

Very good work/life balance
Alot of beuracracy which could be ironed out by better ommunication between layers of staff. Require more elements of openness and transparency. Between management and job holders.

The challenge comes with advancement in the company. The organization does not adhere to their own promotion standards and advancements are always very subjective.
