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

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Edinburgh, Scotland

    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time for 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
