Pros

1. Senior management in the risk sphere seems to be very competent.
2. Role offers great exposure to upper management (EVPs), who value your opinion
3. Salary/benefits are competitive given that workload is not too onerous

Cons

1. Huge organization so it may be hard to quantify your overall contribution to the firm
2. Uncertainty regarding future (and bonuses) given 80% ownership by UK government.
3. Does not appear to be clear-cut career progression; need sponsors within organization to chart career path

Advice to Management

1. Increase interatction between business line and corporate staff (e.g. risk and banking), as well as different geographic areas). This could include school-based or interest-based community networks within CFG
2. Lay out career progression more clearly

    Pros

    Citizens is quite generous with their benefits and no one can begrudge them for lack of effort. Also, their Providence HQ has undergone a change in top-level leadership and I think good things are on the way -meaning changes in mid-level leadership (which is sorely lacking).

    Cons

    When I think of Citizens (corporate), I see bloated herds of clueless VPs running around without even the most basic understanding of 1), their products and customers; 2), any concept of what leadership is; 3), what it takes to be a leader, or 4), any basic experience leading at a lower level and learning the basic concepts of leadership (or even a basic understanding of how relationships are established and maintained).

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to thin out the VP corp, have the remainders spend time in the trenches so that they at least get a minimal level understanding of their product line and whether or not its viable in this day and age.
