"The Canary Wharf office is a typical corporate office. The new office that is currently under construction looks impressive with open-plan seating and great collaboration areas. The dress code is business formal with dress down Fridays."
Innovation, Graduate, London
"Great facilities and we'll soon be moving to an even better office that includes a gym. The dress code in financial and risk is formal, which I like."
Graduate, London
"I work in the Dockland Technical Centre office. The pros of this office are: an amazing view of the O2 arena, open-plan with good desk space, gym and squash courts on site. The cons are: there are hardly any facilities nearby, only one little shop – we do have a free bus service to Canary Wharf office, though. Our dress code isn't strict. Most people wear open collar shirts and trousers for men and a dress for women. However, many also wear jeans and a t-shirt. Really, you can wear what you want so long as it's appropriate. The dress code in the Canary Wharf office is more formal ie suits."
Graduate, London
"The office is great. It's strategically located with many facilities and it's pleasant to come to work. The dress code is business casual unless you're client-facing – then it will be business."

"We are soon to move to a new office, which looks amazing. Generally, the offices in London are well maintained and very functional. Technology is of a good standard (which it needs to be) and the dress code is smart to business casual."
Finance, Graduate, London
"Office space is fit for purpose and based in Canary Wharf. We get free tea and coffee etc and the dress code is smart but with casual Fridays."
Midlevel, London
"We wear business attire but on Fridays we can dress down in jeans and smart casual clothing."
Graduate, London
"The dress code is pretty casual. We have no clients coming in so you can wear what you want: shorts, hoodies, flip flops, whatever! We have a pool table, a foosball table and table tennis in our communal areas for leisure so we can get away from our work for a bit. We have break-out rooms if needed and the whole office is open-plan so it is very much like a community among the employees. We have some high-tech telepresence rooms where we can video conference with any of our offices around the world and this is a very fancy and immersive space – it feels like they're really in the room with you."

"The Canary Wharf office is amazing, really great location, modern offices, exactly what you would expect from that location. During the induction period you will be based at Canary Wharf, and after will depend on your role."
Graduate, London
"The dress code is fairly relaxed, i.e. a suit with open collar is normal and casual Fridays also take place. The location is great - right outside Canary Wharf station and close to many shops and food places."
Graduate, London
"It's open-plan but not too open-plan. It's a nice bright office with lots of windows. There is tea and coffee on every floor but no canteen, so if you want food you have to leave the office. Dress code is very relaxed if you're not talking to clients."
Graduate, London
"This depends on the office; the London HQ is right in Canary Wharf, in which office attire is business casual (sales wear suits). New York office is a great building right in Times Square with similar regular facilities."
Midlevel, London
"We have a number of locations in London, the main office being based in Canary Wharf. Every office has its own personality. I work in Canary Wharf and it's great to work in such a buzzing location. We have an open-plan office layout, which is very spacious with canteen and breakout coffee areas on each floor. Facilities are brand new."
Graduate, London
"The flagship offices are amazing, in spectacular locations and with great amenities. The company is going through a transformation right now and consolidating offices, so I'm sure the other locations will improve in the near future."
Graduate, New York
