    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Coutts & Co (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Commute to location easy, offices well equipped.

    Cons

    ...could do with looking after their staff more to achieve a worklife balance.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give as none taken seriously whilst employed with them. I consider that gold nuggets of information that won't benefit me now if I were to offer advice to them.

    I have been working at Coutts & Co full-time

    Pros

    Flexible and good compensation. It pays at least 10% more than big bank in CH, and most of the additional benefits are even better.

    Cons

    Business model may be out of date. Too much rely on the mother bank RBS, and now she wanna get rid of the child in CH,
