    I have been working at RM part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice new office facilities
    Good team work ethics
    Customer base expanding again
    Always looking for new ideas - supportive of staff working on new developments

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management Team - promotion and opportunities are about who you know not what your potential is.
    Too much work off-shored to India - there are some good staff in ESI but not enough. The UK have to clean up all the messes they create.
    Salaries are not competitive enough to keep the good staff on.
    Still a lot if uncertainty about the viability of the company, staff morale low in many teams.
    What was once an excellent benefits package that made RM stand out is now mediocre and "in line with comparators" to quote SMT.
    Very much still an "old boys club" - very few senior positions for women and even less for part-time workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop off-shoring everything - cheaper resource does not equal an improved service for customers and supposedly it is our customers that are meant to be at the heart of everything we do.
    Get rid of the boys only culture which exists.

    Pros

    Compensation OK.
    Good opportunities if u happy the seniors

    Cons

    No ONSITE for experienced people.

    Advice to Management

    To management of RMESI. Please give onsite opportunities for existing employees. At several meetings we employees raised our concern on onsite opportunities. The management then made excuses like Not any onsite opportunity so far and In case if any such opportunities coming we will surely give. We believed it to the lack of openings. But recent days we could see that RM is in taking some freshers and giving onsite opportunities inleu of bond. Why don't can follow this pattern to existing employees too. Why this differentiation.

    It's shame that even the fresh non experienced people joining in financial services are getting onsite opportunities but those who in other areas are giving none. .

    No use in having long exit interviews judging the cause of employees resigning. The reason is clear. The wrong way of handling employees, nothing else.
