I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland

Pros

Plenty of time to look for another job, long lunches, lots of free time and laughs. Time off was never an issue and when work was necessary, minimum requirements were accepted.

Cons

Nothing to learn, no motivation or expectation of advancement. A dead end for sure. Witness extreme organization failure with absent management consumed in their personel affairs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember, the workers are vital and will support if respected.

    Pros

    Every place has its pros/cons, but having said that people are generally friendly/pleasant. Overall, firm culture is laid-back. Work hours aren't bad.

    Cons

    Uncertainty about medium or long term direction.

    Total Comp will be less than other banks. Some corporate title-inflation exists (e.g. VP's getting promoted unexpectedly to MD) to narrow pay differential.

    No sick leave, sick days come out of vacation leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any specific requests/guidance from them would be really appreciated and acted upon, quickly.

    Pros

    Very good group of people
    Good mix of drive/respect for others career choices.
    Opportunities to influence change within organization.
    Opportunities to advance career - you must drive this though.

    Cons

    All bonuses awarded as deferred compensation
    Inconvenient location for many (Stamford, CT - especially not good if you are young)
    Insufficient training for new hires - pretty much a "throw you in, see if you swim" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is decent but would become great if more emphasis was placed on bringing new hires up to speed .
