Good entry IB role, but poor career advancement opportunities leading to exodus of good young talent

Client Service Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt was a good entry role into Investment Banking, and the work-life balance is one of the best around (probably too good!)

ConsPoor career advancement opportunities led to an exodus of good young talent and has led to an ageing workforce. Still struggling to break out of banking crisis.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess changes in the hierarchy and a reduction in the number of levels - too many chiefs, not enough Indians couldn't be more appropriately used.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
