Hopeless and pitiful

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland

Pros

Can't think of any pros, perhaps the commute if you live in Fairfield county

Cons

The most misguided, pitiful and political company I ever worked in and they are in a free fall. A major reorg at least once a year, very mediocre management, all good people are gone, the incompetents stayed behind. Hideous politics as everyone is trying to survive. Terrible reputation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are the problem.

    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Modern facilities, in major cities. Account benefits for all staff members such as extended overdraft, travel insurance and pension plans.

    Cons

    With the bank split into business and customer clients bases, the focus is really directed away from customers as the majority of profits comes from business clients. As a result the side of the business that deals with customers tends to be filled with the less ambitious, more incompetent staff. There is a great deal of jumping through hoops required to get to a position of responsibility where you are capable of affecting the status quo.
