Good sense of direction from management

Cons

Management styles vary from department to department.
Poor software for staff use over different department means different approaches to work
Training schedules vary wildly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better communication with staff. Standardise more interdepartmental co-operation so less chances for miscommunication to the public or something falling between the cracks.

    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They offer good salaries and benefits, and an identifiable corporate identity. Being a large company, there are lots of opportunities to move into different areas and take on new projects

    Cons

    There are a lot of complex legacy systems, and no willingness to update them, so many manual work-rounds are to be found.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember not all the staff are on the same page - some of us are high flyers, and some really do like to just do the same job every day
