I worked at Citizens Financial Group

Pros

In my branch at least, everyone was extremely fun to work with, friendly, and supportive. My manager was a good guy, who understood how to keep everyone motivated, and working well together. He addressed issues before they became a problem. I worked here as a college student, and they were understanding of my priorities being A) school and B) work at the bank. I was actualy invited to be a part of their student internship program, which entailed bi weekly days spent at the new york headquarters, meeting with high level executives who gave us speechs on what it was like to work high up in the company.

Cons

Working in a bank period is difficult - frequently customers are highly distressed over money, which tends to be very personal, and you need to be able to diffuse that situation. Overall, it was a perfectly find part time job in college, which was good customer service experience, but I saw now real room to advance, unless you saw managing a branch as your ultimate goal.

    I have been working at Citizens Financial Group

    Pros

    There are a lot of things I enjoy my place of work. There are a ton of great people. The atmosphere in the office is largely relaxed- it is certainly many steps removed from the chaos of a trading desk, for instance. All of these things make coming into work something that I enjoy.

    Cons

    Constant change- as well as a RIDICULOUS amount of grey area that one must presume is a result of management not wanting to step on THEIR management's toes- these have been my biggest gripes. Lack of guidance and support from senior management is a big missing piece for me. If they engaged us, the employees, they would see SUCH a better return on employee engagement. With the resources and might of a company this size (CFG is a subsidiary of the behemoth Royal Bank of Scotland), things could be run so much smoother.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage, engage, engage. Morale matters most.
