    Pros

    Opportunity to work independently, interesting projects, and generally good co-workers.
    Definitely a firm where you have to be on your toes and be able to work with minimum supervision and still deliver results.
    Overall I found people to be very competent.

    Cons

    Industry is hitting a rough patch, changing priorities are difficult to manage, and flexibility is a must.
    Shifting priorities can be difficult to manage, company seems ocasionally reactive rather than proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall pretty good.

    Pros

    Usually a good work-life balance
    New building
    Not a ton of work, nothing seems incredibly rushed
    Decent gym on site
    22 vacation days at an Analyst level, VPs get 27 days, additional days with tenor (a former Greenwch employee with 10+ years would have 39 days off)....it seems like people are always on vacation

    Cons

    In Stamford, a major reason people quit is they cant stand the commute
    Deferred bonuses
    Wide range of personalities...some people act like they're working for Goldman Sachs, others could care less because it's RBS.
    Lots of turnover
    Very little employee loyality to RBS
    Except for the mortgage trading business, everything else is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more
    Move to NYC
    Spread out the work. Some groups work a ton, other people only have a consistent workload half the time
    Make employees want to stay, there's a ton of turnover
