Former Employee - Risk Management Intern in Bridgeport, CT
Former Employee - Risk Management Intern in Bridgeport, CT
Approves of CEO

Pros

Hours are reasonable and the employees are engaging. Work/ Life balance at RBS was encouraged at all levels. I took part in many company sponsored road races and other charity events that were looked highly upon by upper management. The actual offices at RBS were quite nice with great views of the Sound.

Cons

Felt I was working for no clear purpose. My manger did little in showing an interest in my growth as a professional. Work was dealt to me on an ad hoc basis without any indication of how it would be used in the future. Internal politics can get a little tiresome after a while, in addition to to typical bank bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Proper internship training program is needed

    Deal with the incompetent people who are hiding in senior positions, drawing big salaries, yet are delivering very little.
