    I can't imagine a better place to work

    Analyst (Current Employee) Liverpool, England (UK)

    ProsIt's family friendly, and flexible. There are lots of opportunities for progression and to try new things. There's also chances to travel if it's what you want to do. Location wise it's ideal for anyone who lives in the Liverpool area and the social side is great too!

    ConsThe building is a bit past it's use by date! There's quite a bit of office politics but where isn't there? Strategically things seem quite unclear and it feels like they're making it up as they go along!

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee things through! And when you don't explain why! Sort out the infrastructure as there are too many systems!

    Nice company but a bit sluggish

    Business Partner (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsA friendly environment, with a great deal of potential - expecting Steven Hester to seriously shake this sleepy 300 company up

    ConsComplicated, matrix management structure, means too many layers, and too much process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking like a 300 year old company - the U.K market is seriously tough and RSA needs to be fighting fit.

    Great people / atmosphere, not very agile business

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Liverpool, England (UK)

    ProsI like the people, and they really do seem to value their employees - staff turnover is low, lots of inward recruiting. Good offices (although some better than others), nice location (near the train station). Total compensation is high (pay, bonus, benefits etc)

    ConsConstant threat of redundancies, little communication from upper management. Business appears to move slowly and extremely cautiously.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeed up! For instance, this is 2014. There definitely shouldn't be modems in an office.
    Communicate more. An entire department just got outsourced? Not even a notice on the intranet....

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat staff and a fantastic atmosphere!

    ConsTerrible systems and to much change ie, shifts, management etc

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue doing the great stuff you're doing and stop trying to change the world overnight

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
