CFG is essentially a super-regional bank owned by a large foreign parent - RBS

Risk Manager (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

Pros1. 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

Cons1. 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 Senior Management1. 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
