Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Easy to switch groups The building in Edinburgh and Stamford is nice and modern Above average level of responsiblity for junior staff Decent vacation package

Cons

Very poor management in all locations They waste millions on ridiculous things despite the current environment and government ownership No promotion structure. Way too many Managing Directors who got the title without any performance history. No clear strategy - management changes strategic direction frequently They stopped paying bonuses except for a very small group of staff within the firm No career development Everyone sits around doing nothing and waits to get laid off since 2008 They promote people into positions even though they lack the skills, experience and education to perform in the role

Advice to Management

Let the UK government participate in key decisions rather than having a clueless management team with no eductional background make decisions Start controling expenses The government should shut down the bank and stop pouring billions into an organization that has no reason to exist
