Good company overall
Associate (Current Employee) –  London27 June 2018
Good company with great benefits onsite and flexibility with work offered however this all depends what your team culture is like and your relationship with your manager.
Lots of cuts happening so act cautiously.
Pros
Medical centre with onsite doctors, gym, social activities / clubs and networking opportunities, nice canteen, 3 benugos in the building, nice view of the river Thames
Cons
Old technology, slow to implement change, lack of support from managers once they get to VP and above, people out for themselves (depends on team)

Business Manager (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London20 June 2018
One of my first impressions of Nomura was that I liked the people I met there. Several years later, that is still true. One of its other strengths is that it's big enough to be a professional organisation, but still small enough that it's possible to change things.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Conservative approach to flexible working

Market Risk Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London16 April 2018
Nomura has a good work culture and a strong work ethic. Having a reasonably small presence in London (as compared to other banks that I have worked with) it was possible to have access to the decision makers and obtain clearance / signoffs for the various plans.
