I have been working at Citizens Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Depending on which department you work in, work/life balance and just overall experience is drastically different. Life is tough in the branches. If you are on the corporate side, you get a lot more respect. There are more areas like wealth management or premier.
If you are in sales... Close lots of business and you walk on water. Also, surprisingly enough the pay is quite good at Citizens.

Cons

Management is the worst thing about this place. I'm always amazed at how upper management seems to find poor managers that bully and rule by fear. Office politics is bad.

Advice to Management

Promote more from within. Get respectable people that know how to lead, not just the sales guy that gets the goals by any means possible.

    Pros

    Great place for white Women. Best thing that happened to me since I joined RBS Citizens is I left it.

    Cons

    Treats minorities like aligns. most executives' mentalities goes back to the fifties. regardless of the policies they post and hide behind, when it comes to hiring and promoting minorities, RBS Citizens is the worst company I have seen in my last 30 years of employment. It is known at RBS Citizens that HR is there to cover the company's behind rather than making it right.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the HR policies that you claim is there to protect people of color and face it this is a white dominant place with no room for minorities. 100% of your SVP and about 97% of your VP are pure white. If your get serious about being equal opportunity place, it will take you decades to get there. Why bother?
