    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely talented coworkers and ability to rub shoulders with experts at other financial institutions. Adds weight to your resume for future jobs after you leave.

    Cons

    Leadership is absolutely inept. They put in a gazillion hours and are promoted for loyalty and willingness to be married to the firm. Not for people management abilities or process engineering prowess. The firm is fraught with scandals and is a very abrasive/rude work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people management skills and don't bonus top brass only. Culture matters as we have to go to work every day for 10+ hours and get yelled at all day every day.
