Pros

RBS is currently trying to integrate its acquisition of ABN Amro. As a result the business is under going a lot of change. There is plenty of work for business analysts and project managers who have experience in the banking industry. Many of the projects cover dynamic markets and wide geographies making them valuable experience in any change professionals CV.

RBS supports employees having a work life balance. The focus is on achieving the things that need to be achieved - there is no credit given for being the first person in the office and the last person out. You are assessed on your results.

Cons

The pay is not the best in industry. However, leave is very generous.

Advice to Management

Make it happen.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some managers are very understanding if you have a family and help within reason.
    Salaries are average or above average in the City. Benefits package is one of the most generous in the City.

    Cons

    Mediocrity in high performing areas is some times tolerated.
    Career paths are never clear and one has to work hard to find the next career move.

    Advice to Management

    Be open on opportunities within the bank. It is good for some people to circulate in different posts within the bank. Branding and 'pigeon-holing' does not, most times, benefit the morale of staff.
