    I worked at Citizens Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great hours and benefits. Well advertised. Competitive product lines make for confidence in sales.

    Cons

    Get ready to be a telemarketer. That is what you will do 80% of the time. Selling with a gun at your head. Pressure to hit sales quotas results in unethical behavior amongst colleagues, and inappropriate placement of products. Quotas are unrealistic, so you wont make any extra bonus. Job threats continuously. Most stressed group of people i have ever met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your sales people make some money. Remember you are dealing with people and their lives, not machines.

    I have been working at Citizens Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Having a job. I think the only thing worse than working at Citizens Bank is being unemployed. At least you are getting a paycheck, but other than that... nothing good.

    Cons

    Open floor plan seating (NO privacy at all), constantly removing vacation days (they've taken away almost 3 weeks of vacation time in 5 years) and other benefits with each passing year, unsupportive and unsympathetic management, no one follows any rules/policies, no appreciation for talent/hard work, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit your jobs! Citizens Bank needs to hire managers who actually care about their staff and who appreciate the individuals who put in a solid effort each day. The current management only cares about the brown-nosers who have no self-respect...
