    I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Near to train station.

    Cons

    All employees working at RBS, Stamford CT, DO Not escalated assault or harrasment accusation against the Directors. Employee relations Team will frame you and fire you. They do not care who is right or wrong. All they favor is high up people. Plus the operation department is a joke. MD hires his friends from across the street and let them run their monkey business. It's a joke! People with lack of professionalism and caliber are assigned as the leader and manager on duty. Waste of resources and Money.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional and accountable to your employees.
