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

    Pros

    Laid back people. Employees are nice and respectful. The building is pretty neat too although it's going away

    Cons

    Chaotic, management has no idea where we are going. Also working on the trading floor is distracting for non-traders.

    Advice to Management

    Think and stop about what metrics mean instead of blindly trying to get them below/above certain values.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Employees are the most valuable part of the firm and they dedicate a lot of resources to appropriately train. Strong focus on fostering personal growth and finding a career rather than a job.

    Cons

    Strong period of transition and turnaround. Rescinded my offer because they sold their North American operations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Large turnaround because of a lack of a competitive salary is a huge red flag.
