    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Clydesdale Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, decent benefits and good City Centre location.
    Some interesting work, depending on what area you were in.

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management. Several Managers who#ve been there for years and certainly couldn't cut it elsewhere at the same level.
    Several redundancies on the way.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the old guard. Invest in your people.
    Get rid of the way the annual review is currently done, nothing more than a brown-nosing exercise.

    I have been working at Clydesdale Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very collegial atmosphere with interesting and up to date challenges. Due to smaller (less big rather) size of organisation exposure to senior leaders is a constant.

    Cons

    Smaller size and sometimes to many veteran(old school) people.
    Needs more career progression options and progress

    Advice to Management

    Keep career paths for younger folk more detailed and structured

    Great company to work for, plenty of opportunity for development if you have the capability and right attitude. Forward thinking and bold. Great people and great teamwork, work hard, but play hard too.

    Make you feel worthwhile and important

    Look after staff well and they will look after customers well too.

    Pros

    Used to be flexible with shifts etc, decent pay for what it is.

    Too many changes, too much micro management. Became quite boring.

    Advice to Management

    Let the staff get on with it, don't micromanage every single thing that we do.

    I have been working at Clydesdale Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great CEO with a desire to bring the bank into real challenger position. Open and accepting culture with a great buzz in the head offices.

    Cons

    Lots of experienced staff have left recently so there is real knowledge gaps in some area. Change seems to always take longer than it should but pace is increasing

    Advice to Management

    While change needs to happen, don't over-do the scalping of more experienced staff. There aren't many people who understand how all the systems work and hang together.
