Was happy to leave

Vice President (Former Employee)
Stamford, CT

ProsInitially the money was good, as was the reputation. Most of the people I worked with directly were actually quite nice.

ConsBut things went downhill very quickly. It was a rudderless ship, and you felt it all the way down the lines. I found that those in the US were treated as secondary citizens in many ways. We rarely got information from management in a timely manner and our benefits were far from comparable to our UK colleagues. Maternity benefits were laughable as were the almost constant employee satisfaction questionnaires. I'm confident no one paid any attention to those.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps the now trimmed down RBS will be more manageable. Remember your employees are there at will. Some will leave a poor working environment even if they have no where else to go.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
