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

    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

    Pros

    Emphasis on teamwork, good communication, higher-ups' doors were always open.

    Cons

    Deadlines and expectations were sometimes unrealistic, but this could normally be surmounted by coordinating with other teams to ensure that the overflow was handled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening; this was your biggest strength while I was in your employ.
