Associate (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 26 August 2019
They pay well. For that you better be ready to keep your head down and not have opinions, especially anything which management can't claim as their own.
Staff disappear and it is never spoken of. Sometimes they leave, sometimes its a HR Action. Never tell HR something personal, it will not end well. Expect your every move to be monitored - Clock in and out, toilet breaks, who you do and don't associate with.
They talk a good game about corporate responsibility, but managers do not like people that take part in these initiatives. If its not about their next car - it really doesn't matter.
Promotions are planned about 5 years in advance, so don't even think about it.
Will potentially lose hundreds of staff to Barclays in coming months - I wish I had jumped sooner, sometimes the grass IS greener.
