A Great Place to work because of the people that worked there

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.

Great work life balance and challenging work

Really enjoyed working at the FCA due to the varied challenging work and great, insightful individuals who you work with.

The hardest part of the job

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.

Better than fost financial organisations

FCA has a good structure, with good processes and procedures in place, although they have changed over the years, and some are not all for the better.

Great place, Great Bonus, Great People

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.

Pros

The building is brand new, the people are brilliant.

Cons

None.

Learn and leave

High staff turnover as people come here to learn the basics and then go into industry for better paid roles - management are mediocre and backwards, poor leadership

Fun and Friendly Environment.

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.

Pros

Flexible working.

Cons

Basic rewards, no great incentives.

The best three weeks of my life

I interned here for three weeks and it was an incredibly interesting job! I was never bored and kept learning things. While the experience was unpaid, I still had the best time!

Fca

FCA is a good place tolearn about regulations and UK FS industry. However, a lot of the learning depeends on individuals. Good work life balance, Great learning, sense of contribution. Slow career progression, low salary.
