Current Employee - Local Lean Change Agent in Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Citizens Financial Group as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Lots of travel
Positions available to low experience employes
Great way to gain experience in project management

Cons

The individuals chosen for promotions are cocky and arrogant
The Lean Program is a front for "reallocating human capital". Only problem, reallocating is a loose term that generally means, from CFG's perspective, restructuring a group of employees to the unemployement department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't BS from day 1.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great as far as bonus structure and hours. Work life balance

    Cons

    Mandatory Call Nights, Tons of cold calling, horrible onboarding process,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider sending a colleague to training first as oppoesed to the branch. You do not have access and can not help customers in the way you wish you could. Make sure that who your putting in your branches are going to be mentored

    Former Employee - Personal Banker in Warwick, RI

    I worked at Citizens Financial Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and 401k. Some opportunity for advancement, if your management likes you.

    Cons

    Too heavy of a push for sales. Have quarterly goals to meet and can be fired if sales goals are not met. Have to deal with explaining high bank fees to customers. Zero fee rebate policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce customer fees and relax fee rebates. Ease up on sales goals so bankers can be good customer service representatives without pushing services on customers to get the sale.
