    I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people and a "Blitz spirit" make it a generally enjoyable place to work
    Other's leaving means there is good opportunities for "talent" in corporate banking.

    Cons

    The bank is trying to become less international so more and more work/job opportunities is/are focussed on the UK.
    The bank is still a long way behind peers in its appraoch and abilities. This means the pool of management who you think "I can really learn sometihng from them" is a little thin on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    We are moving in the right direction even if it's a little heavy going right now. There is still a lot of dead wood from the old days around, look to prune sensibly.


  2. "Investment bank with many good people but suffers from poor decision making"

    I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - lots of good staff left in wholesale bank in spite of tough times
    - team spirit among staff is great in spite of struggles
    - very good work-life balance

    Cons

    - slow & poor senior level decision making
    - good staff still seem to be going instead of coming in
    - very little investment budget due to financial issues since 2008, showing in tech systems
    - management not interested in personal development at all
    - bank prides itself on strong integration ability but it has never properly integrated any bank acquired

    Advice to Management

    Appoint good people who are empowered to take decisions instead of postpone endlessly, and spend more money to get things done properly
