    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Natwest full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Small size and getting smaller - lots of visibility, willingness to wear many hats goes a long way. Management team is good, open and knowledgeable. If skill set and interest match with small scope of business now done at Natwest, it's a good place to work - if the larger bank decides to keep the investment bank business.

    Cons

    Constant lay-offs drag down the entire culture of the firm. What was once a thriving, growing business has been cut-back to a bare-bones operation. London senior management is retail-bank focused and would love to rid themselves of the entire investment bank. The US operation exists ONLY to support UK and European clients and provide access to US capital markets. If senior management pulls the plug your 60 day clock starts...

    Advice to Management

    Grow or close the US investment bank - the current operating basis creates a bad culture.
