I worked at Coutts & Co

Pros

Strength of brand awareness always helpful when attracting new clients.

Cons

Appalling IT, and laborious credit processess. Promotions not always given on merit, rather on political connections with senior management and visibility in the office as oppose to competency on the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to sort IT issues and credit processess out urgently. Too much time is wasted by employees on the phone to IT helpdesk and chasing credit submissions.

    I have been working at Coutts & Co

    Pros

    Good team spirit, excellent place to build relationships to leverage your career, prestigious name that looks good on your CV, access to the latest developments in PWM with the opportunity to specialise in various areas.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a lack of cohesiveness between various parts of the Bank, promotion prospects are not always obvious, comparatively low level of compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote understanding between various parts of the Bank, ensure that everyone learns to manage client expectations, review compensation (in all areas) in line with other leading PWM firms.
