    Negative Outlook

    I worked at RBS Citizens full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Vacation time if you can find a way to actually take it Health insurance

    Cons

    No work life balance what-so-ever. Goals are changed yearly, quarterly, monthly or weekly to keep your pay out as low as possible. They will require you on conference calls when you are supposed to be selling, so you won't make your goals then either. Will require you on conference calls before and after normal work hours. Also they always find a way to remove the OT on time cards.

    I worked at RBS Citizens

    Pros

    Decent benefits and easy commute. Coworkers were mostly friendly.

    Cons

    Only work here if you want no direction or conflicting directions from three different departments who don't talk to each other. Hawks a family friendly, work-life balance culture which is a lie. I was harassed when I asked for short-term leave, a benefit I paid for with my weekly salary, and which was protected under the AMA. I was wrongfully terminated due to a health issue, fought it, and won the case.

    Diverse, friendly colleagues. Depending on your role, can have exposure to senior management. Changes in bank might proivde opportunities to be promoted quicker and have more responsibility.

    Cons

    Location. A lot of uncertainty from downsizing and becoming more efficient. A lot of pressure from going public. Sometimes work life balance does not exist. Large turnover of employees.
