"We're in an incredible office and location."
Technology, Graduate, London
"Both the building and facilities are really great. There's a gym, a dentist and a doctor on site as well as a terrace garden. Our dress code is business formal."
Graduate, london
"The offices are very central and in a good location with a gym and doctors downstairs. The canteen food upstairs is reasonably good, although kind of expensive now. The desks are comfortable, although the old 4:3 screens aren't very nice. The dress code is business dress although ties and jackets seem optional."
Graduate, London


"By far best office location I've worked at. Office is located by Monument tube station. Dress code is regular business attire (suit/tie) with a casual day on friday. There is an on-site gym for employees and an excellent cafeteria on the 6th floor with a terrace that overlooks the Thames river."
"Location is great - at bank - several routes to get there. Facilities are fantastic - there is even a multi-faith room which is fantastic for me. The restaurant provides a lot of variety as well. Office space depends on what floor you are on - as I am on the trading floor I get the same desk as everyone else including my manager which is fine. The dress code is business conservative - but Fridays are smart casual"
"Suits every day bar Friday, where one can dress down to Business-Casual wear. The office location is good, there's plenty around, but not so concentrated with other big banking houses, so quieter than the Square Mile or Liverpool street area, which has its pros and cons."
"Very new offices so everything is clean and organised. I could quite happily eat 3 times a day in the canteen and having a good gym on site is a massive bonus. Dress code is strict in my team but it seems to be up to your manager."
"Dress code is smart and the office is brand new and overlooking the river. The building is extremely modern with excellent catering facilities on each floor."
"The office is absolutely amazing- it's spacious, clean, high tech and generally a great place to work. It's very near London Bridge Station and other tube stations so access is very easy. The canteen has really nice and affordable food and the gym has great equipment and helpful staff. The dress code is supposed to be conservative but is not constraining. As a female I don't feel like I'm pressured to wear black, grey, or jackets all the time. I just dress professionally."
"Nomura has a brand new, state of the art office. In my opinion I don’t think you’re going to find a better equipped office in the city then Nomura's. Facilities include a roof terrace, gym, high tech auditorium, canteen, coffee shops & the 11th floor which is dedicated to hosting various co-operate events as well as wining & dinning clients."
"The office is located centrally within the City. Very accessible by any means of public transport. Superb facilities and very apt dress code."
"Standard and quality is very high. Facilities are great kitchen space for all departments. Dress code is very smart, you would simply feel out of place to not uphold this standard."
"The building is amazing! It's brand new and looks very impressive! The dress code is formal and everyone in the office dresses very smartly. During the Olympics everyone was able to dress casually like on a Friday which for most people meant taking off their tie."
"The Frankfurt office is very centrally located, and probably the most beautiful of all investment banks offices in Frankfurt. The office is very spacious and always clean. The London office is great, and in the middle of the City. We have a great view on the river and food & coffee facilities are awesome. It is so nice, I would even spend time voluntarily in the facilities outside of work if I could. Dress code if business, we do wear ties. We do have casual Fridays."
