Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Work life balance, ability to climb carreer ladder (but must never complain or voice your opinions as it differs from colleagues). Reasonably fair in employee review (but don't expect that management will listen).

Cons

No creativity, lack of leadership without micro management, slow to change (they don't want to change), poor outdated MS packages, poor IT support, if self opinion is expressed you stand out like a black sheep.

Advice to Management

Be quck to review the managers and their leadership skills, get rid of managers who are dragging the team and overall company down. Adopt transparency, break the snobbery hierarchy, create team work, become forward thinkers in a modern society and break free from RBS .

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Strength of brand awareness always helpful when attracting new clients.

    Cons

    Appalling IT, and laborious credit processess. Promotions not always given on merit, rather on political connections with senior management and visibility in the office as oppose to competency on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Need to sort IT issues and credit processess out urgently. Too much time is wasted by employees on the phone to IT helpdesk and chasing credit submissions.
