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

Pros

High turnover therefore opportunities to step up and learn abound. Easy access to senior management if you are willing to put in work.

Cons

Poor pay, no raises or bonuses. Terrible commute from NYC. Bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Compensation needs to be improved.

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

    Pros

    ...prior to the government takeover. My review is based on that timeframe, which I understand is very different from now. Excellent pay and bonuses. Managers that had reasonable expectations and looked out for their employees. Allowed a lot of latitude to do the job as seen best fit. The very best earned promotions, the average kept their jobs, the worst got removed- just the way it should be. Outstanding benefits even compared to peer group.

    Cons

    Upper management all in the UK, which meant USA employees sometimes felt left out. Missteps by a few cost a lot of people money and jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Things are different from when I was there so no comment.
