Pros

RBS is currently trying to integrate its acquisition of ABN Amro. As a result the business is under going a lot of change. There is plenty of work for business analysts and project managers who have experience in the banking industry. Many of the projects cover dynamic markets and wide geographies making them valuable experience in any change professionals CV.

RBS supports employees having a work life balance. The focus is on achieving the things that need to be achieved - there is no credit given for being the first person in the office and the last person out. You are assessed on your results.

Cons

The pay is not the best in industry. However, leave is very generous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it happen.

    Pros

    Salary & package, progression, management attitude, can do attitude, relatively short working hours. No bullying, staff helpful. People get on with things. Not too much procrastination. Very little reliance on management consultants. Relatively high level of contractors with good knowledge across the industry. Executive managers care about communication and keeping staff informed.

    Cons

    Large group spread over many sites, lots of travelling. Sir Fred a little annonymous. Does not write a blog of keep staff posted on his thoughts. Was not very humble about events over the last 12 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be brave enough to walk away when you need to.

    Pros

    It's more relaxed than other banks. You don;t have to keep up your "face time" by hanging around till 8-9pm or until the boss goes home. It allows you have a work-life balance.

    Cons

    Poor pay and now we have taken on so many mangers from other banks who have brought their politics and culture with them but not the increased pay packages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Somewhere along the way we lost the magic that made us RBS (and I've been here over 10 years). People no longer have the team-working focus they once had, now it's all individuals trying to justify their existence and bonus especially if it's at the expense of other.
