Cons- Narrow scope of work

Generally a good company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland

ProsGood people, my colleagues are fantastic. Work Like balance is good. Introduction of more customer focussed approach in a Conduct Risk environment, striving to thinking long terms and 'doing the right thing'.

ConsDisjointed strategy within different departments and salary and reward packages low in comparison to main competitors. Not much willingness for anything 'outside the box' in terms of pay. Negative media coverage often brings moral down.

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