    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Citizens Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At this point I have no PROS to report.

    Cons

    Colleagues are no longer valued as they were under the leadership of Larry Fish. RBS has come in and changed the entire atmosphere of Citizens Bank; for the worst!! Life at Citizens Bank is soley about the numbers now. Of course numbers are important to any organization; but without your valued, dedicated, loyal colleagues you wont make those numbers.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Citizens Bank as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of travel
    Positions available to low experience employes
    Great way to gain experience in project management

    Cons

    The individuals chosen for promotions are cocky and arrogant
    The Lean Program is a front for "reallocating human capital". Only problem, reallocating is a loose term that generally means, from CFG's perspective, restructuring a group of employees to the unemployement department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't BS from day 1.
