    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time

    Pros

    The people made a difference and the line of work was very rewarding when the Americas region was in a healthy state, it's currently being downsized and eventually a much smaller presence if any.

    Cons

    Inconsistency of management; constant changes as a result of poor decision making from management.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on efficiency and consistency.

    Loved the team that I worked with. We knew how to work hard, and enjoy each others company.

    I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some really great people and an excellent benefits package. Great facilities/amenities. Used to be a pretty great place to work.

    Cons

    Massive layoffs/significant downsizing in the U.S.

    Limited bonuses/raises for the past several years.

    Little to no room for growth.

    Lack of transparency.

    Managers are generally clueless.

    Company more interested in leasing out space in the building to outside businesses to generate revenue than actually hiring and retaining talented people to earn it through the banking side.

    All makes for terrible overall work morale.

    Advice to Management

    Try taking care of the employees that are taking care of your business. People are jumping ship left and right because they feel they are undervalued and not properly taken care of.

    I can not emphasize enough how this concept should be looked at from the bottom up and not the other way around.

    Value your employees, ALL of them. Don't just take care of the ones at the top. (who aren't doing much anyway)
