Painfully slow technology
New joiner here - started FT in August.
I did the internship virtually last summer and don't recall any technological speed bumps.
But this year, I can't even put into words how many mind-numbing headaches have been caused by the technical issues I have to deal with on a daily basis. I suspect the main culprit is our Virtual Desktop, but not entirely sure.
Often throughout the day, Excel/, it'll take literal minutes to load up a graph or open a big doc. Outlook crashes too and sometimes it takes way too long to send out a simple email. on basically a daily basis.
The frustrating thing is I do like my job and my team, but the amount of time it takes to complete a task is drastically raised simply because of tech issues.
I know there's nothing really to be done about this situation on my end, but I was wondering if this is happening at other banks?
