Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Cab facility, free transport, still a good brand (?)

Cons

Business is not doing good.
Massive inequality in salary and role between new and old hires, irrespective of experience or skill level.
Extremely incompetent senior and middle management mostly comprising of people who know little or nothing about technology or process.
Too many people who are NOT of any value in the organization.
Focus is on Visibility if you want to grow.
New policies(career model) which is an excuse not to promote people.
Too much politics at all levels.
Developers are also used for providing tech support (even on weekends and holidays) in some units
Too many designations in the career path which will make growth extremely slow
Though flexi working hours have recently been introduced they are not pratical as people rely on cabs for transport.
3 months notice period.

Advice to Management

Most of the good people have already left. Try to retain good people who are left.
Bring more transparency and quality in the organization.
Do away with the new career model.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    RBS is at the bottom, so hopefully the only way is up!

    Cons

    Sycophantic culture upwards to boss, but pure bullying downwards to sub-ordinates. Absolutely no concept of adding shareholder value. Merely how much can I extract personally.

    Advice to Management

    Hester needs to see through these middle management barons who deceive with smoke, mirrors and powerpoint presentations.
