My Role at the FCA was always going to be a challenging one. The work culture was very dated and it took nearly 6 years to show any improvement. The reason why I stayed so long was, the people that worked there. They made the going into the office and the work itself a whole lot easier and more enjoyable. I was there for 9 years in total and that was because, although I didn't really enjoy the role, the people made up for it. Thankfully as I left things were starting to improve in terms of the Working Culture and environment so I think if your considering it, then go for it.
Really enjoyed working at the FCA due to the varied challenging work and great, insightful individuals who you work with. The FCA are always keeping up with the times as it needs to regulates banks and new policies therefore you’ll always find yourself working on something that makes a change in the industry / forward looking.
The hardest part of the job was when we had to do a presentation on how the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) could improve there advertising to young children. We had to use our initiative to find out what current social media they used and how they could add to it and make more. We then showed this in a PowerPoint presentation. It was nerve racking presenting to the higher status people in the FCA.

It was great working in FCA as an IAM Solution Architect I was responsible for providing all IAM related technical solution, design and deliverables for Gabriel security. In this project I was involved in: • Analyzed the current setup and provided the GAP analysis • Proposed the ToBe solution and providing the PoC for majorly the below 2 requirement: O Integration of CAPTCHA with OAM & OIM for Forgot Password feature O Customizing the OOB ADF task flow of unauthenticated flow of self registration page to add automated email containing one time use, unique and time expiry link for OIM forgot password feature, • Providing the solution design and other technical deliverables. • Solved the critical ongoing IAM related issues. This was great work experience.
The FCA has a real talented bunch of people. The management team drive improvements and encourage people to progress and provide the platform to do so. They have a bonus structure which I feel is very fair and gives you huge incentives to perform throughout the whole year. The work life balance is brilliant also.
The building is brand new, the people are brilliant.
The FCA in general has a relaxed and friendly environment in addition to focusing on each individuals needs and requirements for a balanced and healthy work life. This is one of the reasons I enjoy working at the FCA as they are highly supportive in ways of working/flexible working. It is important each individual can benefit from flexible working to suit life at home too. I do however feel that the FCA aren't particularly rewarding to their staff. We have good benefits but in general the social side to work, getting together as a company or even down to divisions are limited. The rewards are very basic and I do not believe staff are praised enough for the positive.
Basic rewards, no great incentives.
having spent 6 months there it was worse place I have worked, management had no clue as to whats going on and hardly around to ask questions. no career path or progression. senior managers seem content keeping staff in their positions for long as possible
poor management and lack of progression
It is a great place to work, with a high work/life balance, great benefits and relevance of work one is exposed to. Great colleagues, prepared and always ready to help. Very capable management and executives.
Nature of work, work/life balance
