    Great grad scheme, if you're lucky to get area you want

    Researcher (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- Grad scheme training is great and supportve.
    - Pay package is also good, as I started on around 45k gbp, not including benefits which totalled me up to 70.

    Cons- Newbies are treated like second rate citizens and everyone's assistant - particularly if you work with traders you will be fetching meals at lunchtime etc.
    - Early starts 7am, late ends such as 12 midnight, dependent on your area but I am referring to markets and banking.
    - Little training as you go further into your career.
    - job instability due to constant cuts
    - Within markets there is little/no opportunity to move when you make a request

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Can't fault RBS

    Sales Coach (Former Employee) Manchester, England (UK)

    ProsVery good with initial and ongoing Training; support throughout time with the Company; and always happy to aid you in any extra personal development.

    ConsDid have a tendency to keep employees in the dark about major news; inter-departmental relationships were majoritively non-existent. Departments hating speaking to each other due to either side's lack of knowledge and understanding of what they did.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just promote 'friends' or create positions just to keep them from becoming redundant; too many of my colleagues never saw an opportunity to progress - due to not having a great relationship with a certain manager.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The best thing about the RBS are the customers and the camaraderie amongst the staff. Snr Management let the side down

    Customer Service (Former Employee) Manchester City Centre, England (UK)

    ProsTeam Working - You will be working with an amazing group of people. Lots of job satisfaction if you enjoy giving good customer service,

    ConsBureaucracy. Senior Management don't listen when the staff give them feedback, so they replace the senior management but continue to make the same mistakes over and over again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't ask for our feedback unless you are prepared to listen, take on board some unpalatable truths rather than kid yourselves that the staff feedback is wrong and actually do something about it. Plan for the long term not just short term wins to protect your own careers.

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